You are here: Home Mortgage Fraud Online Toolkit Building Awareness


Raising public awareness of mortgage fraud is the first step in effectively assisting victims of mortgage fraud and helping homeowners make smart decisions. In this section, you’ll find multimedia resources—from printables to public service announcements (PSAs) to online videos—to raise awareness of mortgage fraud and the warning signs of potential fraud schemes.

Tips for Using these Resources
If you:

  •     are a concerned community member—consider asking local 
        radio stations to air one of the 30- or 60-second PSAs
  •     are a victim service provider—keep a stack of palm cards
        in your office for victims to take with them and share
        with family and friends
  •     feel you might be at risk for mortgage fraud—read the
        “Beware of Mortgage Fraud” flier and/or watch one of the
         online news videos to learn about the red flags
