"CoreLogic and TPG's combined solution provides us with more accurate and detailed information about where potential fraud lies in our origination stream, along with reduced insurance premiums because of our proactive stance on addressing fraud," stated Rob Hirt, chief executive officer at RPM Mortgage, Inc. "The web-based fraud detection solution increases productivity and delivers information that we would not normally be able to obtain on our own. We're very pleased with the combined result."

"RPM is a prime example of how easy and cost effective it is for a lender to implement and use a holistic fraud prevention solution with LoanSafe Fraud Manager and TPG services," stated Tim Grace, senior vice president of Fraud Solutions at CoreLogic. "Our combined solution offers a best practices guideline for lenders to have streamlined fraud prevention processes and insurance protection that reduces fraud exposure."

"Insightful lenders like RPM understand the clear benefits of combining technology and insurance to protect their organizations from fraud losses," stated Arthur Prieston, TPG's chairman. "Mortgage fraud will continue to evolve, however, lenders can be confident that our joint solution arms them with an effective and comprehensive fraud prevention solution."

LoanSafe Fraud Manager combines pattern recognition technology with the nation's largest and most comprehensive property, loan and mortgage fraud data and provides a risk score. CoreLogic fraud scientists have created patented fraud models that assign each loan a fraud risk score spanning from one (lowest risk) to 999 (highest risk). The loan-level score has been proven to identify potential fraud with the industry's highest level of accuracy. By using these scores, lenders can implement quicker and more efficient underwriting and reduce default and foreclosure-related losses associated with fraud. LoanSafe Fraud Manager dramatically reduces false positives and allows lenders to review only the highest risk loans prior to funding.
