March 2017 marks the 13th Anniversary of Fraud Prevention month, spearheaded by Canada’s Competition Bureau. Throughout the month of March, and in support of this campaign, Chicago Title Insurance Company (CTIC) will launch a series of articles that will focus on:
- Real Estate Fraud – fraud for housing (first-party mortgage fraud) and fraud for profit (including straw-buyer schemes and title fraud);
- Claims – articles based on actual claims examples which illustrate how protection against fraud was provided by the title insurance policy.
Stay tuned for more information on types of residential and commercial real estate fraud, examples of these types of fraudulent transactions and what you can do to protect yourself and your clients.
