The only way to find out is to contact the bank you originally applied for a loan. Also, just to make sure contact the credit bereau to report the possible fraud. I hope you can track the guy who took your info.

George, All I can tell you is that when you sign papers to "close the deal" a Notary should ask you for your identification and a fingerprint.

Without knowing what your friend has signed and not seeing the papers firsthand I cannot give you a definitive answer.,

If I were your friend I would put fraud alerts on my credit reports with each of the 3 bureaus.

Where did your friend find this person? Did he give them money? This is very confusing

Contact the broker - he is the only one that can tell you what has happened. Or, check the public records of the county where the property is
