Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This would be reported to the state attorney general's office for unfair and deceptive practices and fraud. The state attorney general is the agency that is watchdog over these mortgage companies. If the mortgage company turns the money over to you as they are supposed to do, then the attorney general will do nothing more than warn them, but they can pursue them for damages and fines if they have kept the money after forging her name on the check.
