New homeowners being targeted by scammers
INDIANAPOLIS — If you’re among the many Hoosiers who recently bought a home in central Indiana, you’ve likely noticed new sets of junk mail delivered to your address.
“I tell my clients when they close, you’ll know when your mortgage has been recorded because you’re going to come home one day and there’s going to be four or five pieces of junk mail,” said Kurt Fancher of Fancher Mortgage Group (GVC Mortgage, Inc.).
Letters and postcards targeting homeowners, urging them to act on an “important matter” regarding their mortgage by calling a specific number, is among the many scams being reported. Often times, these letters include basic information about you and your mortgage, even going as far as using your company’s name, to get you to act quickly.
