Who knew that a mortgage lender could be so much fun?
Yet here I was, last week, minding my own business when a loan servicer from my mortgage company sent me an unsolicited e-mail.
He was interested in helping me with my mortgage.
At first, I thought this must be a scam.
My mortgage is fine. I’m not in any danger of it getting ill, needing life support, or dying. Like most other Texans, we weathered the recent economic downturns with nary a scratch.
Upon further inspection, it appears this is a legit offer. (I called the number and sure enough it’s a local office of my mortgage company and he works there).
Normally, I find that these things never amount to enough of a savings to warrant the headache of signing all those forms and going through the anal probe (a/k/a credit check) necessary.
However, something was different about this offer.
It was in the wording.
Halfway through the first paragraph, Helpful Loan Servicer wrote “…I know I can defiantly save you money.”
And I thought, if he is that adamant….
Maybe he’ll completely delete my remaining balance…DEFIANTLY!!
Power to the Mortgage Loan Servicers!!
