How Are Strangers Getting Our Information to Mail Us Loan Modification Offers? – PJ

“Dear Steve,

Hi, can you explain how these Loan Modification companies get your personal information? The servicer of our loan has stated that they do not ‘sell” clients personal information. Also there is no record (county) of default or foreclosure. We had a rough patch over the last year, a few late payments, but are current with on the loan. If the servicer did not “sell” information how are total strangers accessing this information.



Dear PJ,

They are probably purchasing a list of real estate transactions in an area, based on demographics, which would target likely candidates for delinquencies. That kind of data mining is easy since real estate transactions are public record.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
