Detect Wire transfer fraud risks in Encompass

Wire transfer fraud in the mortgage industry has dramatically increased in the last few years exposing lenders to the loss of the mortgage funds and litigation -- without recourse under their cyber insurance policies.  Fannie Mae and FBI bulletins describe it as “low tech fraud,” and recommend lenders confirm the wire instructions prior to the transfer.   

The PitchPoint integration in Encompass provides a simple, quick and economical process for lenders to verify that the settlement company and bank account listed on the wire instructions have not been altered by a fraudster.  This test prevents fraud, eliminates use of incorrectly keyed account information, and ensures compliance with CFPB due diligence requirements.
