Scammers can target anyone so it pays to be alert!  Below are 7 common warning signs to look out for.

  1. Advising you to pay them instead of the mortgage company
  2. Asks for a fee in advance to work with your lender
  3. Guarantees they can stop a foreclosure
  4. Pressuring you to sign over the deed to your home
  5. Asks for your personal financial information online or on the phone
  6. Sends you “revised” or “last-minute change” email with wire instructions
  7. If a loan and interest rate seem too good to be true

Protect yourself by looking out for these red flags and call your mortgage lender immediately if you ever are questioning a suspicious email or phone call.  They can confirm whether or not the information being requested is a scam or legitimate.
