How to Detect a Dishonest Mortgage Loan Officer [infographic]


Mortgage loan officers with questionable ethical standards profited sweetly during the go-go years of the real estate boom, mostly by pushing risky loans to borrowers who didn’t necessarily have what it took to qualify for one the honest way.

Dollar bills: we look at them every day, yet how many of us truly pay attention to anything besides the denomination value? The fact is, numerous symbols adorn our currency and there has been intense debate over the decades of their meaning. Conspiracy theorists believe the imagery is rooted in Free Mansonry and tied to the Illuminati (if you’ve read The Da Vinci Code or seen the movie, you know who they are). Others contend the imagery is strictly American and represents the foundations of our nation. In this infographic, we explain each symbol from both perspectives.

Getting the  limit raised is easy enough — Congress has done it a dozen times since  ’95 — but this time it is going to first require some major consensus on  how to bring federal budget deficits under control. Here’s a look at  why the debt ceiling is such a powerful bargaining chip in the budget  negotiations.
