|Mortgage fraud is one of the fastest growing financial crimes in our country today. Many Americans are facing foreclosure; and the temptation for desperate homeowners to cut corners, overlook warning signs and trust anyone who promises to help them save their homes is extremely high. However, research shows that if homeowners invest the time and efforts to learn the telltale signs, they can often prevent becoming scammed and possibly, losing their homes to con artists and fraudsters all over the country.
With support from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) and Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) is hosting this event to increase public awareness of this issue from both sides--prevention and victimization. This dual-track virtual conference environment provides useful resources and sessions for current and potential homeowners, along with unfortunate victims of mortgage fraud, and victim support advocates.
Featured speakers include:
Ann M. Harkins, President and CEO, National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC)
Joye Frost, Acting Director, OVC
Kristen Mahoney, Deputy Director, BJA
NOTE: You will be able to log in to the event from 8:45 am EDT on April 10, 2013.
