With Regulators and Law Enforcement Focusing More on Mortgage Fraud, It's Imperative to Protect Your Operation

ALTA has provided three professional development sessions  at the 2010 Annual Convention aimed at helping title insurance professionals learn the latest fraud trends, how to spot the fraud and how to prevent the fraud. This information will help differentiate your company from the competition and will prove to your clients you operate at a higher standard.

Register today to attend the Annual Convention, which is being held Oct. 13-16 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego.

Now is the time to get the latest on mortgage fraud trends impacting the industry as more regulators including the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and law enforcement personnel are zeroing in on mortgage fraud. Here's a look at the fraud panels you can attend at this year's Convention:
