PRESS RELEASE


Interthinx Continues Growth

Interthinx Comprehensive Suite of Fraud Solutions Strengthened by Addition of Mortgage Industry's Leading Provider of Forensic Audit Services


 
AGOURA HILLS, CA -- October 12, 2007 -- Interthinx®, a unit of ISO, and the leading provider of proven risk mitigation, mortgage fraud prevention, and regulatory compliance tools for the mortgage industry, announced the acquisition of NIA Consulting, a leading provider of fraud detection and forensic audit services for the home mortgage and mortgage insurance industries. Terms were not disclosed.

NIA Consulting conducts forensic audits on defaulted mortgage loans and aggregates data from its detailed mortgage loan audit reports. Currently, data from NIA's detailed audits is stored for use during investigations to determine commonalities and potential third party matches for its customers.

NIA uses proprietary technology and business methods in a pre-audit selection process in which it reviews several hundred real estate transactions per month for indications of fraud and misrepresentation. In addition, through its sister company, RE/Value (AppraisalAudit.com), NIA offers forensic appraisal services for the industry.

"As mortgage fraud continues to escalate and become more complex, evolving and mutating in the current lending environment, it is essential for Interthinx to stay abreast of new developments and fraud schemes," said Kevin Coop, president of Interthinx. "In sharp contrast to the current industry trend of cutbacks, Interthinx has accelerated the release of several enhancements and increased its investment in key resources with the goal of building more comprehensive solutions through targeted offerings for lenders, investors, and mortgage insurers. Adding NIA Consulting and its extensive proprietary database to our already powerful fraud protection solution strengthens our search capacity and positions Interthinx to incorporate more real world fraud schemes into our proven automated solutions."

The NIA database, which includes detailed information on borrowers, brokers, appraisers and other third parties, will be integrated into the Interthinx National Fraud Protection Database and Third Party Review (TPR) services, further enhancing Interthinx customers' ability to manage and monitor loan level and third-party risk.

"With the mortgage industry experiencing a dramatic increase in early payment defaults and foreclosures, comprehensive loan audits are essential to combat these challenges," said Cecil Rhodes, president of NIA Consulting. "The fusion of our forensic audit services, proprietary technology, methods and data with the Interthinx fraud detection suite of products will provide a unique and timely solution for mortgage lenders."

NIA Consulting, as a business unit of Interthinx, will continue to be lead by its current executive team.
