Strategic alliance will put wire fraud protection directly in the hands of mortgage lenders and loan applicants
Newport Beach, CA – July 11, 2019 – FormFree® today announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with FundingShield, a fintech firm that safeguards homebuyers, mortgage lenders and title insurance underwriters from wire fraud.
FundingShield’s loan-level verification services assure closing funds transferred at the end of a mortgage loan transaction go to verified bank accounts belonging to authorized recipients. FormFree will integrate FundingShield’s Wire Account Verification Service (WAVS) into its Passport® all-in-one verification solution as a value-added service available to more than 1,000 mortgage lenders and their customers, including those who use Passport through one of FormFree’s more than 100 integrations and reseller partnerships.
“FundingShield creates a more secure closing experience for all parties involved in a loan, from the borrower to the investor and all the service providers in-between,” said Ike Suri, Chairman & CEO of FundingShield. “By partnering with FormFree, we’ll be able to put that protection directly in the hands of mortgage lenders, loan officers and applicants, reducing their risk of lost funds and delayed closings due to fraud.”
“Passport by FormFree is the secure, digital version of a consumer’s financial ID that contains everything creditors need to know about a loan applicant,” said FormFree Founder and CEO Brent Chandler. “Our alliance with FundingShield, which gives Passport users access to industry-leading wire fraud protection, is a perfect fit for FormFree’s focus on making lending more secure and transparent.”
