Phony Postcard (1)

This postcard is not from Heartland Bank. 

We've received notice from our customers that they are receiving a postcard in the mail, referring to their mortgage through Heartland Bank, requesting a call to discuss the urgent matter. This postcard is not from Heartland Bank.

Rest assured, Heartland Bank did not sell your personal information. Deed and mortgage information become public information after refinancing or closing on your home, including the mortgage lender, borrower, loan amount, mortgage number and the property address. Marketing vendors, in turn, use this newly public information to sell you products or services related to your mortgage, like home warranties or life insurance.

We take your privacy very seriously. We would not send confidential account information on a postcard. Account information will always be mailed in a sealed envelope with our logo, sent via an encrypted email or we will call you directly. 

Here's how to spot mortgage-related junk postcards: 

  • Always question postcards with exposed account information. Heartland Bank will always mail personal information in sealed envelopes. 
  • The postcard doesn't have the Heartland Bank logo on it. All our correspondence will have our logo, the Member FDIC and Equal Housing Lender logos on it. 
  • On the bottom righthand corner of the postcard, it says, "All information provided by H.W.C... Not affiliated with, sponsored by, and loan information not provided by Heartland Bank."
  • Your Mortgage ID number is displayed. We never display personal information like this on a postcard. We will always mail personal information in sealed envelopes. 
  • The phone number listed on the postcard is not a Heartland Bank phone number. 

If you receive a postcard like this in the mail, you do not need to call the number on the card or take further action. Consider it junk mail and throw it away. If you are unsure if the postcard is legitimate, please call us directly at 800-759-3119.
