America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
I received an e-mail today from Matt Palmer from Active Assets. He say's I was referred to him by a lender and wants me to reply with my phone number. It anyone dealing with this company, It sounds fishy since the e-mail did not have a logo or heading like a normal company would have?
Anyone that says they were referred by someone with no name is phishing. For what, who knows. If they have your email address, they most likely have another way of getting your phone number. I also generally do not respond to email without phone numbers, mailing address, etc.
It does sound suspect. I received a call today from a person out of Salt Lake City. I've never heard of the company. After doing some investigating, I found out the person was working out of a Regus flex office where you can have a virtual office, rent the conference room, and share the receptionist. There was not information on the Utah Secretary of State's website for this company. I also checked public records of the property he said was the REO assignment, and it showed that the Notice of Default had barely been recorded about 60 days ago. In our state it takes 90 days from NOD recording to have sale. The asset manager said they charge to use their proprietary platform and seemed like he wanted me to make a quick decision on accepting the assignment or else he would have to give it to someone else.
