In a world where Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans are processed without meeting all government verification requirements, a group of aliens come to planet Earth to save originators from themselves. Equipped with fraud detection software, the aliens keep the bad loans out and get good loans processed.
Sound like a nail-biting drama? It’s the plot to one of a series of videos Interthinx posted on YouTube to promote its fraud detection services. The videos take footage from old movies and dub them with new scripts to fit a number of FHA-centered storylines.
The four films are “Attack of the FHA Loan Files,” “Evasion of the FHA Vampire,” “The FHA Affair,” and “The Courtship of Donald’s Sister.”
Obviously, we’re not talking about Oscar-worthy cinematography here, but nonetheless, the videos are pretty funny, especially considering they’re on a subject that, while important, can also be pretty dry.
You can see all the videos here, or check out the epic space adventure below:

The appraisal industry is in the midst of huge disruption as automated valuation models and hybrid appraisal products gain favor with regulators and investors. What does the future hold for appraisers and appraisal companies as they adjust to the new realities of automation?
As Millennials grapple with paying off student loans, their opportunity to buy a home gets pushed further and further into the future. That delay has consequences far beyond individual students — the growing student debt crisis impacts every part of the economy.
There has been a conscious and rapid shift to broaden the use of alternative valuation products for origination. Not every decision needs a $500, full-blown 1004 interior appraisal. And in some markets where appraisers are short in number, the turn times can stretch from days to weeks. What these new alternative — some would say disruptive — valuation products do is enable lenders and servicers to better match the product to the risk by harnessing big data and technology.
