The other day I had a mystery I wrote a about, I had a message from a gentleman from the loss mitigation department of JP Morgan Chase leave me a message about a potential short sale listing he would like me to call about. The street address was the same as a current listing I have that is NOT NOT NOT a short sale. It is owned by a relo company. You can read about my scamish sounding mystery here.
After gathering a group of agents in the office to listen to the message (over and over again), it was decided that he was probably saying it was in Hackettstown, or something close to that. There is a Hackettstown, NJ. There is no Hackettstown, CT, that much I can tell you. Last time I checked, I don't have a license to sell real estate in New Jersey.
Someone in the office ran to their computer and Googled the street address. The third, forth, fifth and sixth slots were me, me, me and me, with my listing at the same street address, in CT. (Trulia beat me out for 1 and 2 slots) The conclusion? Mr. Loss Mitigation must have done the same thing, and not realized I was in Connecticut. That is my ONLY conclusion thus far as I have decided NOT to try to waste any more time on it. The mystery is solved to my satisfaction, it was clearly a case of Google-hit-and-run. You know, when you Google something and only use the blurb that pops up on the search page to get your information. It's worse than reading the cliff notes for a book reading assignment at school! It's like getting your information from a friend who watched a movie based on the book you were supposed to read!
The one thing this whole mystery reaffirmed is that between Realbird, Youtube, my website and ActiveRain I am covered on the Google scene. (that is the order I showed up on Google when we searched for the street address, no town/city/state info.) That made me happy indeed!
Bottom line: I was not pulled out of a hat like a rabbit, it was not a scam, it was clearly a case of a Google-hit-and-run!
There is one thing that bothers me about this. Chase, in an attempt to collect a debt, was willing to contact a third party and discuss information about a home owner in distress. That just doesn't sit well with me.
