Verisk Analytics, Inc. Research Report  

On November 20, 2013, Verisk Analytics, Inc.'s subsidiary, Interthinx, announced the release of its quarterly interactive Mortgage Fraud Risk Report, covering data collected in Q3 2013. The Company informed that during Q3 2013, the national Mortgage Fraud Risk Index valued at 108, indicating an increase of 10% YoY. According to the Company, the quarterly findings of the report also highlighted higher jumbo loan index values across all type-specific fraud risks, with striking difference in the employment/income fraud risk index, where the index value for jumbo loans stood at 146, against a value of 69 for non-jumbo loans. "With the rise in popularity of jumbo loans, lenders must be aware of both the credit risk and fraud risk those loans carry," said Ashley Woodworth, Interthinx's Vice President of Business Development and Corporate Strategy. "While the most significant fraud risk gap occurred in the area of employment/income, it certainly wasn't the only area where risk was present. Occupancy fraud risk for jumbos, for example, was extremely high - more than 200 by our index versus 150 for non-jumbo loans. The risk is out there, and lenders need to be aware."
