Garbage. Somehow they get wind that you are refinancing your mortgage, then call you sort of pretending to be the lender you’re working with.
Not explicitly, since they do say they are Sharp Loan. But if you aren’t paying attention you could easily think it’s legitimately related to the refinance you have going on and end up getting scammed.
They implore you to “immediately” call to” review “important information” about “your application” and “to protect your privacy.” Of course, I have no business with them.
Here’s a transcription of the voicemail I received:
“Hi, my name is Matthew with the Mortgage Services Department at Sharp Loan.
We have important information regarding an inquiry and the review of your mortgage application.
Contact the Mome Mortgage Line of Credit and Pre-approvals Department immediately at 714-701-8458.
And again, this is Matthew with Sharp Loan Mortgage Broker in Orange, Orange County, California.
In an effort to protect your privacy contact our office at 714-701-8458 and please provide the number you received this message at an any of our trained professional representatives can assist you with your application.
