Fraud Prevention


The Federal Housing Finance Agency is committed to the detection and prevention of mortgage fraud in the secondary market. To further this commitment, FHFA has promulgated a fraud rule that requires Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks to submit fraud reports as directed by agency guidance and advisory documents for the agency’s use.   FHFA also participates in working groups with fellow regulatory and law enforcement agencies, including the President’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force, to support open communication and collaboration in the enforcement of fraudulent activity involving mortgages and financial instruments.
