Mortgage fraud risk
Nevada has the highest risk of fraud by mortgage borrowers of any state,Interthinx, an analysis firm in Agoura Hills, Calif., reported last week.
The company said fraudulent reporting of income by borrowers appears to be on the rise as borrowers seek to meet debt-to-income thresholds even while their incomes are stagnant.
Heather Ashbridge, who started with Nevada State Development Corporation in 2008, previously served in several roles with the organization, including assistant vice president and loan officer. She is based in NSDC’s Reno office.
