Beware Of Mortgage Scams

It’s come to our attention that Evergreen Home Loans and other mortgage companies have been the target of scam artists. These scam artists are posting on Blog sites as loan officers from legitimate mortgage companies in a fraudulent attempt to collect personal financial information from customers.

Here are some Blog sites they are utilizing:

www.TradeMyLoan.com
www.MortgageGrapevine.com
www.2hands.org
www.Moolahlist.com
www.Lendpost.com
www.realestatefinance.ning.com

This scheme involves using Evergreen Home Loans home office address, images of our corporate website and company logo, our NMLS ID, and even the names of loan officers who work for Evergreen.

Evergreen has reported these incidents to our local regulators, state Department of Financial Institutions, and HUD. Additionally, we have engaged the services of private cyber experts who are pursuing all legal remedies in an effort to quickly shut down these criminal operations.

We intend to resolve this matter quickly and will post updates as they become available.
