Have any other cohousing communities encountered this kind of an RFI (Request 
For Information), especially recently?It is seeking copies of our condo docs, 
although Liberty Village is not a condo.I have almost forty years experience in 
real estate and never heard of this company or of the alleged mortgage company, 
but that doesn't mean they don't exist, however in this booming century of 
scam-a-minute hustles, I triple check every shark I've never been bitten by

The weirdest thing was they submitted this RFI direct to our inquiries e-mail 
via the community web site, not directly to any member of the BOD or HOA 
management.Further, they did not offer any authentication by the alleged lender 
or from any subject client party of either company.
My Corollary RFI: Do you typically see any/many/every prospective purchase 
lender asking for your Association budget, insurance policies, or generically 
identifying every HOA as a condo?
Response to everyone to broaden our collective knowledge will be appreciated, 
but feel free to respond directly if you have harsh opinions you prefer to not 
Cheers for legal safety for all cohousing communities.Tom LofftLiberty village,
