FIT Report – Fraud Application Tool

Be vigilant in executing a quality control plan, assuring you that the mortgage application data you receive and review is accurate and low risk. Reduce the risk of loan repurchase due to fraud using objective and independent analysis that utilizes the most current real-time data.

Partners simplifies the process with the FIT Report. Our comprehensive report identifies key factors of potential fraud within your borrower loan application by comparing against a massive network of consumer, property and corporate information. Our single page summary allows for a fast review of problem areas and includes a borrower ID risk score as well as a report status with a running tally of outstanding alerts.

Alerts are clearly displayed throughout the FIT Report within the screening summary, clearing summary, and detail report. Each alert links directly to the Partners clearing tool where users can address individual alerts or cycle through all alerts, clearing one by one. The clearing tool lists the total number of alerts along with the total alerts outstanding, with all cleared alerts being reflected as “Cleared” and green go flag associated with the individual alert.
