Avantus, a leading provider of customized mortgage credit reports, mortgage-related services and technology solutions, announced today that its LoanShield Borrower Review has been deemed fully compliant with CitiMortgage’s fraud prevention guidelines, and Avantus will be added to their approved vendor list of mortgage fraud report providers.

With mortgage fraud cases continuing to rise, resulting in more stringent compliance requirements, the ability of Avantus to stay a step ahead with LoanShield and its other compliance products has resulted in significant momentum with top lenders and mortgage loan originators across the country.

In addition to the LoanShield Borrower Review approved by CitiMortgage, the LoanShield suite of mortgage fraud detection tools also include LoanShield Credit Review, for compliance with the Fannie Mae Loan Quality Initiative (LQI), as well as integrated MERS data, tracking millions of mortgage loans from origination through the life of the loan. LoanShield’s advanced fraud detection algorithm scans and analyzes loans against extensive property and participant data sources with a click of a mouse; detecting equity skimming, identity theft, straw buying, property flips, broker fraud, appraiser fraud, employment misrepresentation and many other types of fraud instantly.

By lowering the risk of fraud-related foreclosures and early payment defaults, LoanShield can increase lender revenue; and LoanShield’s instant fraud alerts provide an at-a-glance summary of the loan’s risk, helping lenders make faster, more informed decisions and reducing costs through more efficient underwriting.
