Unwanted Solicitation After a Credit Inquiry

To my valued clients:

In recent years, less reputable mortgage lending companies have taken to buying consumer data directly from the credit bureaus in order to solicit prospective mortgage borrowers. This trend seems to have truly amplified in the past year. 

We understand that you may have received numerous inquiries from other mortgage lenders after we ran your credit inquiry. We want to assure you that we are not the ones selling your information to these third-party solicitors.

Credit bureaus are required by law to provide your credit information to any authorized entity that requests it under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Unfortunately, this may include other mortgage lenders who are trying to win your business through unscrupulous and sometimes misleading tactics. We strongly advise that you exercise caution and avoid sharing your personal and financial information with these unsolicited callers.

To avoid such calls in the future, we suggest adding yourself to the National Do Not Call Registry. Please visit: https://www.donotcall.gov/

Adding yourself will help reduce the number of unwanted calls and emails from telemarketers and spammers.

Here is a consumer guide from the FCC on Call Blocking Tools and Resources, which includes information on many of the call blocking and labeling tools currently available. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We value your business and appreciate the opportunity to serve you.

Best regards,
Jason Finn

P.S. File a complaint with the FCC if you believe you have received an illegal call or text, or if you think you’re the victim of a spoofing scam.
