VP, Business Relations
After a successful battle with fraudsters in Georgia prompted by property flipping that threatened her own familys home, Ann Fulmer came to national attention when her story was featured in People magazine. Fulmer is a nationally recognized speaker who has illuminated the hidden costs of mortgage fraud to title insurers, mortgage bankers, brokers and servicers, realtors, appraisers, state and federal regulatory and law enforcement agencies, and community groups.
Her determination to protect her family and community led to the development of the Georgia Real Estate Fraud Prevention and Awareness Coalition, Inc. (GREFPAC). Fulmer is a co-founder and immediate past president of GREFPAC, a coalition of representatives from every segment of the real estate and lending industries, state regulators, local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and neighborhood victims. GREPACs success identifying fraud rings and its assistance in criminal prosecutions has garnered national recognition and serves as a model for fighting mortgage fraud.
As a lawyer, Fulmer spent several years litigating insurance fraud cases. She has also served as an Assistant District Attorney prosecuting white collar crime, as a private detective specializing in mortgage fraud and as a civil litigator representing lenders in mortgage fraud cases. Fulmers expertise is often sought for assistance in researching and analyzing fraudulent transactions, identifying fraudulent schemes and perpetrators, and in the preparation of evidence for prosecutions.
