The Bremerton Police Department recently issued a notice via Facebook and Twitter, stating that a postcard scam has been making the rounds to community mailboxes.

The postcard has statements such as “immediate response needed,” “time sensitive” and “important matter.”

“You have recently closed on your mortgage with HOMESTREET BANK,” the postcard states. “We need you to call us about an important matter regarding this loan. This is time sensitive so please call us at 844-628-7646 as soon as possible.”

BPD states that these postcards did not come from a financial institution and the Mortgage ID listed is not their loan number. There is a also a disclaimer in the corner that should be a tip-off, per BPD.

“DO NOT call the number,” the BPD Facebook posts states. “It is a mortgage scam and the best place for the postcard is in the trash or recycle bin.”
