One of the most common kinds of financial institution fraud involves loan or mortgage application fraud. During the last decade, many bank and mortgage company officials orally encouraged individuals and businesses to misrepresent their income and other factors on mortgage applications. When these borrowers don't make their payments, the banks review the applications, looking for misstatements of income or other misrepresentations of fact. If the banks find anything, they will often turn the case over to a federal agency for prosecution.
