Chase Doorhanger Scam???

Got home today and found this door hanger on my house. I lease it from a Minister & his wife and will likely be buying it in the spring. We have been here 3 years. They have a VERY small mortgage through a local bank here in town, not Chase. I asked them about this and they said they have NEVER had dealings with Chase. My address is clearly posted and i'm on 5 acres in the country. There are 3 houses in this area in foreclosure. 1, 1 - 5 acre lot west, 1, 3 - 5 acre lots south and 1, 2 - 5 acre lots southwest of me. In all likelyhood i suppose they posted it on the wrong property. I did not and will not call the #. From what i can find on the net it might be a scam? Anyone see a doorhanger like this????

Doesn't look like a scam. It's the # for the collections dept for Chase. My guess is it's due to one of the neighboring foreclosed lots.

As we all know, they can send us an address to go do work on and not have a clue if it's a lot or a home. Inspector probably incorrectly assumed the owner of the house owned the lot.

I've never seen this door hanger in the valley before and i have seen tons of them. I'll have one of my brokers look up notices in the county records tomorrow. I think the recorded notices have leinholder info on them.....

Better keep an eye on your house...... make sure no preservation company cleans it out and rekeys it while you're out in the field. Oh, man........

Guy doing inspections for Safeguard used to have those, but I never saw them preprinted with the lender. He had to write in the name and number for each lender depending on the property. Out where you are, yeah, some halfwit didn't take the time to do their homework and just hung it on your door. Don't know of anyone else that used that type other than Safeguard.

My thoughts exactly. Freaked my 13YR old daughter out as she had just walked home from the bus stop. Guy was a REALLY unsavory looking character according to her. She headed for the gunsafe and was peeking out another window till he left. Obviously the dip**** can't read as this is in the driveway. I personally ESPECIALLY out here in the sticks will never go around a no trespassing sign. (unless the place is obviously vacant) There's areas here where your taking your life in your own hands.......

. . .and the state of Montana says you are on your own if you choose to ignore a No Tresspassing sign.
I went around one once, fully knowing that the house was occupied, but I needed an address picture that was on the house. I got met half way up the driveway with a 1911 .45, followed by the guy carrying it!

I have seen a couple homeowner posted notices such as "Private Shooting Range. Beware!" and "Trespass at your own risk" , knowing that they meant to shoot anyone caught on their property without advertising so.

Your idiot probably got $5 for his effort...
