Course Description

Length: 1h 9min    Published: 8/2/2018    
This one-hour MCLE presentation uses case studies from legal cases that have been adjudicated in courts and arbitration. A variety of different techniques have been used by people to fraudulently acquire real estate by altering documents or applying someone signature to a document. After viewing this program you will have an understanding of what to look for when a prospective client claims that real estate documents have been fraudulently created. Locard's exchange principle states that the perpetrator of a crime will leave evidence at the crime scene or take evidence from the crime scene that can be used as forensic evidence to solve the crime. In each of these cases, the method by which this evidence was discovered is presented. The cases presented are: - Filing of a fraudulent deed of trust. - An attempt to disguise the signature on a real estate sales contract. - An attempt to present a lease signed by the decedent. - Real estate listing agreement with the buyer’s signature. - Signatures applied to a contract using cut and paste techniques use of statistical techniques to help show that a person signed a real estate contract that he claimed he did not sign.
