Truth-in-mortgage practices urged by Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON — According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, “If you are a manager for a publicly traded bank, mortgage lending company or a home builder offering mortgage or title insurance and you can prove your employer is gouging consumers with illegal fees and or up-charges that would degrade investor confidence in the company,” you should report the violation by calling 866-714-6466 as a part of the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission’s whistleblower program.

“Aside from a whistleblower reward that might produce a multi-million-dollar compensation payout-you may be allowed to remain anonymous,” according to the group’s website, “We’d call the SEC whistleblower reward program a first-class winner, and we are urging an insider to call us anytime if your company is lying to shareholders about its true profitability and or liability issues.”

The types of mortgage, banking or home builder insiders the Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from include the following: A publicly traded home builder that is lying to their home buyers about mortgage fees and or about the buyer receiving the ‘best possible interest rates’ or title insurance costs or related fees; a publicly traded bank that is gouging bank mortgage borrowers on interest rates, mortgage fees and associated products, such as title insurance where the bank is receiving an illegal kickback; a publicly traded home builder that is providing home buyers with bonus features in a new home if the consumer will use the builder’s overpriced mortgage product that generates income, a practice that some courts consider unjust enrichment; and a national title insurance company that is paying bribes or kickbacks to various real estate brokers, so their clients will be forced to use an overpriced title insurance policy.

Can a Canadian obtain a mortgage from a US bank for a house in Canada?

With US mortgage rate dropping and a strong Canadian dollar, I am interested in finding out if I can have a portion or all of my mortgage from an American bank. Is this feasible? Please advise.

Yes this is possible many banks lend in multiple countries. This is more prevelant in the residential market.
