3Rivers FCU warns of ‘pink postcard’ scam

FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – “Be vigilant.”

That was the warning from Chad Gramling, data manager at 3Rivers Federal Credit Union, who has noticed a spike in the “pink postcard” scam he first saw in 2018.

“Unfortunately, it has to work because it’s still working today.”

The card notifies homeowners that something is wrong with their mortgage and uses their actual lender to appear authentic.

Gramling said mortgage information is publicly available.

Cards like these are not usually available from your lender.

“It’s really kind of a fog and mirror to get people to call a number that isn’t your institution’s number and give out personal information, or in some cases I’ve heard from people who have inadvertently refinanced their mortgages elsewhere. So it’s really not something you really want to pull through,” he warned.

He suggested throwing the card away, but those who want to learn more should speak to their lender in person or find their real phone number on the lender’s website.

“There’s nothing wrong with being a little suspicious.”
