My question involves a mortgage in the state of: Wisconsin
I have a few questions that I would like to ask about possible mortgage fraud. I tried looking on the net for information regarding this specific issue, but all of the information I found was pretty ambiguous concerning falsifying one's marital status.
1. Is it considered mortgage fraud if you lie about your marital status to your mortgage lender (claiming to be either "a single man, or a single woman" when in fact you are married)?
2. If this is illegal, what would be the consequences for committing this type of fraud?
3. Finally, what could it possibly benefit someone to this?
Thanks for any help clearing this up.
