Mortgage Fraud

Freddie Mac is committed to helping the mortgage industry fight fraud and our Financial Fraud Investigation Unit (FFIU) is at the forefront of all our mortgage fraud prevention efforts. One such fraud prevention effort are two new Freddie Mac mortgage fraud reporting forms – one form is for origination-related fraud, and the other form is for servicing-related fraud.
