Affinity Corp. said it would introduce a mortgage fraud prevention service for lenders at the National Association of Mortgage Brokers annual convention this week.

The company estimated that fraud causes losses of about $30 billion annually on the $13 trillion of mortgages outstanding in the United States.

Affinity has created a software and data base service with a repository of public and private mortgage fraud information, including more than one billion mortgage-related records. The company said its clients would have access to 62 million retired Social Security numbers, a national broker and appraiser registry, lender/investor watch lists, and other real-time information.
