2014 Red Flags Quiz - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The Red Flag issues addressed in this training session do not apply to our Retail Originators because they are essentially our own SPM company employees.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even though the Retail Originators are considered as employees of the SPM company, they still need to address the Red Flag issues discussed in the training session.

    There is no need for me to be educated on the various fraud schemes or red flag issues because that is my manager's responsibility.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because it is important for individuals to be educated on various fraud schemes and red flag issues, regardless of their manager's responsibilities. Being aware of these issues can help individuals identify and prevent fraud in their own work and contribute to maintaining a safe and ethical work environment. Therefore, it is not solely the manager's responsibility to be educated on these matters.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If my loan is not located in an area identified by FNMA Fraud Finding Statistics, I do not need to review my loan files for red flag or fraud issues.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because even if a loan is not located in an area identified by FNMA Fraud Finding Statistics, it is still important to review loan files for red flag or fraud issues. Fraud can occur in any location, and it is crucial to thoroughly review loan files to identify any potential signs of fraud or red flags, regardless of the area.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Whenever I can identify a red flag issue, that automatically means fraudulent activity is present in the loan file.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because identifying a red flag issue does not automatically mean that fraudulent activity is present in the loan file. While red flags may indicate potential fraud, further investigation is required to confirm the presence of fraudulent activity. Red flags serve as warning signs that prompt lenders or investigators to dig deeper and gather more evidence before concluding whether fraud has occurred. Therefore, the presence of a red flag does not guarantee the presence of fraud.

  • 6. 

    With declining loan volume, fraudulent activities are almost extinct and we need not be concerned.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that with declining loan volume, fraudulent activities are almost extinct and there is no need for concern. However, this assumption is incorrect. Fraudulent activities can still occur even with declining loan volume. It is important to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to prevent and detect fraud, regardless of the loan volume. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

  • 7. 

    As long as the loan application is fully completed with all required information, signed and dated by both the Borrower and Loan Originator, then red flag issues and/or potential fraud are of no concern.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even if the loan application is fully completed, signed, and dated, red flag issues and potential fraud can still be a concern. Completing the application does not guarantee the absence of fraudulent activities or red flags. Lenders and loan originators need to thoroughly review the application and verify the information provided to ensure its accuracy and legitimacy. Failure to do so can result in approving fraudulent loans or lending to borrowers who may not be able to repay the loan.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Occupancy issues being considered as fraud or misrepresentation is not just a pricing issue, but rather a matter of providing false information or misleading others. Therefore, the statement that occupancy issues are not considered fraud or misrepresentation is false.

    A Borrower’s letter of explanation (LOE) is always the best source for addressing and clarifying file inconsistencies and red flag issues.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A Borrower's letter of explanation (LOE) may provide some information to address and clarify file inconsistencies and red flag issues, but it is not always the best source. Other documents such as bank statements, employment records, or credit reports may also be used to provide a more accurate and comprehensive explanation. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that asking for additional information that is not required by the AUS system would lead to over-documenting the loan file and providing poor customer service. The correct answer is False because it is acceptable to ask for additional information if it is necessary for the loan process and does not result in over-documentation or poor customer service.

    We do not have to be concerned with undisclosed debts because we always pull a credit report on the Borrowers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even though pulling a credit report on borrowers can provide information about their existing debts, it does not guarantee that all undisclosed debts will be revealed.
