About This Course:
It's not what you know that will hurt you when lending-it's what you don't know!  In a USA Today Snapshot entitled "Different Faces of Fraud", financial professionals concluded that 19% of the fraud committed against their institution was on the front end of the application process.  Learning how to read and understand credit reports is a lending basic.
