  4. Consumer Alert: Beware Companies Posing as Quicken Loans
Freelancer working on laptop when having breakfast

We’ve had reports of fraudulent activity regarding newspaper advertisements, email and physical mail being sent by companies posing as Quicken Loans or even your real estate agent. Please view this sample of a scam fax.

Please note: We’ll never ask for an upfront deposit, down payment or closing costs to be sent through a Western Union wire transfer, and Quicken Loans only offers mortgages. If you’ve received an offer that you didn’t apply for or are unsure about, please contact us at (800) 863-4332.

Fax and Classified Ad Scams

In addition to these schemes, we need to make you aware of a new scam that involves someone posing as your real estate agent.

Real Estate Agent Closing Scam

For those who qualify to wire closing costs and a down payment to their title company, near your closing date you’ll be receiving those instructions from either your closing agent from the title company or your real estate agent.

These emails tell you the bank name and location as well as the bank account and routing numbers you need to know. That being said, you should carefully check the source of the email to make sure it’s legitimate.

Scam perpetrators are sending emails that look official, but instead of having the account numbers for the bank in your transaction, it’ll be the personal account numbers of the scammers.

As an example, if your realtor’s email address is JaneSmith@gmail.com, nefarious people might email you from JoneSmith@gmail.com or JaneSmith@gnail.com in order to try to trick you into sending your closing funds to an unintended recipient.

If you have any doubts regarding the legitimacy of an email, you can contact your title company or realtor on the phone to determine if the instructions came from them.

If you’re interested in a mortgage to purchase a home or refinance your current one, you can apply here or give one of our Home Loan Experts a call at (800) 785-4788. If you have any questions or want to check an offer made via email or over the phone, you can also leave a comment below.

  3. Earlier this morning I received a phone message from 904-638-9537 purporting to be Quicken loans which said the refinance we requested had been approved and to call Quicken back at 855-909-2274. We never requested a refinance.

    1. Hi Mary:

      We do have a lead under your email address in our system. It looks like it came from a third-party, netmoneywizard.com. They are a lead buy provider, meaning that you or someone using your information filled out the form. The provider then takes this information and provides it to various lenders who might be interested in helping you look into your mortgage options. I tell you all this because you might also receive calls from other mortgage lenders. I’m also going to pass this on to our client relations team for awareness.

    1. Good morning, Hong:

      I’m unable to positively identify a loan for you based on your email address or your name. If you could please send us an email with your phone number that you’re getting calls to, we would be happy to opt you out of our system. You can send the email to Sarah@quickenloans.com. I apologize for the inconvenience. Have a good day!

    Thanks for your help,

    1. Hi Tyler:

      That opts you out of marketing, but doesn’t opt you out of phone calls if you’re working on submitting a lead to us. I just checked and the email you gave me here isn’t associated with any lead we have. If you could send a note to Sarah@quickenloans.com with the phone number you’re getting calls at, we can opt you out. I understand your feedback on the phone calls. We try to call our clients soon after they ask for information because when you’re looking to buy or refinance, typically you want information as soon as possible. That said, I will forward it to our client relations team. Thanks for reaching out!
