Fraudsters can sometimes solicit mortgage applications from trusting, unsuspecting mortgage applicants and well-meaning but unqualified mortgage brokers. To help prevent this sort of abuse, your mortgage broker should be participating in, which gives real estate owners more control over what their broker does with private financial and personal information, when dealing with legitimate peer-to-peer (P2P) and private lenders.

What is a private lender? Any lender that is NOT: a bank, treasury branch, credit union, loan corporation, trust corporation,

insurance company nor any person engaged in the business of making loans. A private lender is a private individual who chooses to invests his or her accumulated wealth by loaning it to other persons on an occasional basis, either personally or through a privately held corporation.

Accreditation does not mean that the private lender's products or services have been endorsed by nor does it mean that endorses the products. Investors who seek to lend money privately are not obligated to seek accreditation, nor may they choose to seek accreditation.

Only Accredited Class® Private Equity Mortgage (PEMTM) Investor-Lender (APLTM) are proven to provide fully compliant, non-bank debt solutions with a focus on quality resulting in the higher levels of borrower satisfaction than others. Look for the APL designation whenever you are seeking non-institutional credit. Demand it.

Watch out for Predator Lenders

Be Wary - Be WarnedTM

What can a Predator Lender do to you?

As a consumer, you don't want to be led the wrong way by the wrong people. It wastes your valuable time and often your money. Suppose a person approaches you and says that they are a "private lender". How do you know that for sure? What if they are people "pretending" to be private lender so that they can obtain your personal private credit information in order to do identity fraud....or worse? The internet is riddled with examples of this type of criminal behavior.

Some fraudsters pass themselves off as private lenders in order to obtain upfront fees from unsuspecting borrowers, or they want to "phish" for credit information so that they can sell the information on the black market or perpetrate identity theft. As a consumer, you could be at great risk.

As a broker, your reputation is at stake and you open yourself to liability and lawsuits. helps you by identifying and certifying private lenders for veracity, efficacy, experience and ability.

What is predatory activity in lending, brokering and banking?

This happens when unscrupulous lenders, brokers or bankers work, either together or independently, to put you into compromising financial situations. 


The good:

Don' t confuse good lenders, brokers and bankers from the bad ones. The good ones stick the rules and if mistakes are made which might negatively affect you at a financial level, you can sue the lender, broker or banker in an effort to remedy your situation. Often, lenders, brokers and bankers have something called: Errors & Omissions Insurance (EOE), which protects them in the event of lawsuits brought about due to their negligence. When you start a lawsuit, once the EOE insurers lawyers get involved and if it is determined that the lender, broker or banker truly made a mistake (either forgetting to do somthing or doing something wrong), then the EOE will settle the lawsuit and pay you money. 

The bad:

The bad lenders, brokers or bankers are tricky. Some are so smart that they do something wrong or purposefully not do something that is required of them, such that if you get financially hurt, they expect at least one of the following outcomes:

1 - you will take your losses, suffer and move on with life. Not telling anyone because:

a) you don't know that you have options (ie: sue under an EOE policy)

b) you are embarassed to let any one know that you are caught up in a bad financial mess

2 - you report the lender, broker or banker to the regulatory body and sue under the EOE, in which case the persons or company will simply claim that "they made a mistake" and expect the insurance company to pay you any damages.

The problem with EOE is that they only cover claims when a good lender, broker or banker make genuine mistakes. If the EOE insurer determines that the lender, broker or banker committed real fraud, then the policy might not cover the situation, in which case, you will need to sue the party and hope they have sufficient assets in order to pay for their actions.
