Five Reasons Mortgage Companies Struggle with Email Signatures

Design

Most mortgage companies rely on individual employees to create their email signature. This results in email signatures that look different depending on the formatting and spacing used. While some employees prefer their name to be in a purple font written in cursive others, prefer a more classic approach. This is a problem as people outside the company who communicate with employees via email have a poor perception of the company.

The scam relies on the eagerness of the first-time homebuyer and the confusion surrounding closing day, which for most people represents the single largest monetary payment of their lives. When everything about the home buying experience is new, borrowers are unlikely to notice the fake “broker” has requested the down payment money be sent to a new account.
