Non-Prime Times publishes Partner Eric Johnson's article on FTC crackdown of fake document sellers

In the November/December issue of Non-Prime Times, Partner Eric Johnson presents a recent case filed by the FTC against operators of websites that sold fake financial and other documents which could be used to facilitate identity theft, tax fraud and other crimes. Eric cautions that buying fake documents and synthetic ID fraud is a huge issue for the auto finance industry, but the FTC is working to combat these issues.

Eric assists national and state banks, savings associations, credit unions, mortgage bankers, other licensed lenders, motor vehicles dealers and automotive finance companies in the development and maintenance of nationwide consumer mortgage and automobile finance programs; online motor vehicle sales programs; litigation funding programs; and electronic payment programs.
