Consumers have received emails from someone claiming to be the chief executive officer of Impac Mortgage Corp. and requesting money in order to receive a loan. But the messages are fraudulent.

Unsolicited emails have been sent using the name of Joseph R. Tomkinson, who is the CEO of Impac-parent Impac Mortgage Holdings Inc. But Tomkinson is not the actual sender of the message.

The email offers the recipient loans from the Irvine, California-based mortgage banking firm. But before a home loan is given, money is requested.
