  • Encouraging the buyer to use fraud during the application process
  • Pressuring buyers into specific loan products, including high-risk loans or loans with higher interest rates
  • Establishing an interest rate on the basis of anything other than the borrower’s credit history
  • Charging additional or unnecessary fees
  • Deliberately targeting at-risk buyers and suggesting cash-out refinance
