FRAUD ALERT!!! A fraudster has been using APLA’s logo and actual members’ contact information and posing as a legitimate private lender and requesting bank account information by email. THIS IS A SCAM! APLA is not in the business of making or negotiating loans. Please notify us if you have been contacted by any person posing as a lender from the APLA that requests your bank account information. We will confirm if the person you are working with is in fact an actual member of the Arizona Private Lender Association. Thank you.
