Morf Media Inc., leader in enterprise compliance training for the mobile workforce, today announced NewLeaf Wholesale, a division of Skyline Financial Corporation is hosting training on upcoming regulatory changes that impact real-estate loans. Register for the session here conducted by Morf Media, Inc. SVP of e-Learning Ginger Bell. She will present best practices to get ready for the new integrated disclosure rule issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, TILA-RESPA (TRID) on August 1, 2015.

In this seminar, mortgage originators and real estate agents will gain insights, tools, tips and training to prepare for the new processes, deadlines and archiving rules associated with meeting TRID compliance. The training helps industry professionals make sense of the major 1800 page rule which requires significant process and communication changes. In a step by step process, the training shows how attendees can become experts on the new rule.

“The secret to TRID success is to start now with the materials and resources I provide in the training and on my TILA/RESPA Toolkit website,” said Bell. “When you leave the workshop, you will have a game plan that’s easy to follow. Take the initiative now to learn how to educate your partners to keep their transactions on tract with the upcoming disclosure changes.”

This session will be led by Bell, mortgage industry training veteran, who will explain the highlight of the new rules and provide tools and resources to help originators understand the changes and gain valuable information to be able to share the changes with their agents.

TRID consolidates four existing disclosures for closed-end credit transactions secured by real property. The forms being replaced by TRID are:


Good Faith Estimate (GFE)
Initial Truth-in-Lending Disclosure
HUD-1 Settlement Statement
Final Truth-in-Lending Disclosure

In their place, TRID mandates the use of two disclosures: a three-page loan estimate and a five-page closing disclosure. The free Train-the-Trainer events will provide a step-by-step approach to help trainers and company managers know about the mandated changes while ensuring their loan origination software is up-to-date.

Most Americans Plan to Cap Holiday Spending at $500 This Year [WisePiggy.com]

Foster City, Calif. (PRWEB) November 11, 2014

For many Americans, the winter holiday shopping season is one of the most expensive after buying gifts for family and friends. New research from WisePiggy.com suggests that consumers are trying to prevent those bills from becoming too high, with three out of four respondents to a new survey saying that they planned to spend the same or less than they spent in 2013.

Here is how many of the 2,000 respondents plan to spend on the holidays in 2014:


Less than $ 250 – 27.64 percent
$ 251-500 – 31.93 percent
$ 501-750 – 21.39 percent
$ 751-1,000 – 10.04 percent
$ 1,000 or more – 9 percent

Men plan on spending more than women in 2014, with 37.4 percent of men planning to spend over $ 500, to just 25.4 percent of women.

This is what Americans plan on spending their money on in their winter shopping (more than one option could be selected):

Gifts for adults – 73.41 percent
Gifts for children – 67.52 percent
Gifts for pets – 26.04 percent
Food and beverage at home – 44.48 percent
Food and beverage out – 22.84 percent
Travel fare – 7.80 percent
Decorations – 27.37 percent
None of the above – 6.30 percent

While over 50 percent of respondents saying they will or might use credit cards for the majority of their spending, just 14.9 percent expect to go into debt because of it. This is how soon Americans anticipate paying off their credit card balance:

Immediately – 42.42 percent
January – 9.24 percent
Within 3 months – 12.19 percent
Within 6 months – 11.09 percent
I don’t know – 25.04 percent

“Credit cards, when used wisely, can result in a smarter holiday spending plan,” says Loryll Nicolaisen, WisePiggy.com managing editor. “Cash-back spending rebates, zero-percent introductory purchase APRs and bonus rewards from preferred retailers can all come in handy when making your list and checking it twice.”

Did adding a free credit score website inside a resource link is a violation of yahoo answers plan?

Question by peaceandlove: Did adding a free credit score website inside a resource link is a violation of yahoo answers plan?
Did adding a free credit score site inside a resource link is a violation of yahoo answers plan?
No, I am just placing the relevant link. I just place the link to credit score website when the query has asked anything regarding credit score.

Best answer:

Answer by Wildgrl
It can be:

Any outside link (url) need to be straight relevant to the query being answered. If the link is continually being shown with ALL the answers, it get’s fast picked up by the Spam hunters. Even when it’s not a direct violation, it might constantly result we difficulties. Spamming seldom / when ever wins appeals.

I recommend NOT posting them. YA is a Q&A url…not a site to create “customers”.
