Transcripts from a Loan Interview:
Applicant: Oh...you’re a private lender...?
Applicant: Well….before I answer your multiple questions about my financial details, my SIN/SSN number, my income, employment and family information, let me ask you one question:
Fraudsters can sometimes solicit mortgage applications from trusting, unsuspecting mortgage applicants and well-meaning but unqualified mortgage brokers. To help prevent this sort of abuse, your mortgage broker should be participating in PRIVATELENDER.org, which gives real estate owners more control over what their broker does with private financial and personal information, when dealing with legitimate private lenders.
Yes it can be; VERY RISKY! PrivateLender.org helps make it safe for you!
