Mortgage Fraud

From the Paper:

"Mortgage fraud is committed by individuals in a position of trust within a company's infrastructure. These individuals have gained enough trust to ensure that their clandestine activities as they relate to fraud will not be uncovered. These individuals are in breach of their company contracts by trading inside information and withholding opportunities for others in the form of larger profits. The individual is using their place of employment for personal gain through self dealing. Insider abuse may be related to fraud through the distribution of loans to insiders in excess of regulations. This includes high risk ventures, and speculative risks. It also includes the very high payment of exorbitant dividends during periods of insolvency within the company."
