Now that we have pulled your credit - please be advised that you will be solicited by other mortgage lenders vying for your attention. Please just ignore those phone calls, emails or text messages as they are merely phishing technique with baseless rate quotes. 

Our credit vendor - Advantage Credit Credit does not sell your information to any 3rd party, nor do they purchase Trigger Leads from the three credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion and Equifax).  However, whenever credit is pulled from any credit agency (not just from Advantage Credit), all three credit bureaus are reselling this data to companies that purchase such leads from them.  Advantage Credit is very much opposed to this practice, but cannot prevent the bureaus from doing it.  We only provided your name, address, social security and date of birth to obtain your credit report without your phone number or email address. However, this will not entirely stop them.  The bureaus will still be aware of the credit inquiry, and most likely already have your contact information to pass onto these companies that purchase the Trigger Leads.   

Here's what you can do to protect your privacy. You can opt out of their data from being used.  Our website does provide more info on this by clicking here.
