Scammers can target anyone so it pays to be alert! Below are 7 common warning signs to look out for.
Advising you to pay them instead of the mortgage company
Asks for a fee in advance to work with your lender
Guarantees they can stop a foreclosure
Pressuring you to sign over the deed to your home
Asks for your personal financial information online or on the phone
Sends you “revised” or “last-minute change” email with wire instructions
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.
