PennyMac stopped working

i have a mortgage with Pennymac and it had been working, but recently stopped. When I try to fix it by reestablishing the link, I get the following error message after putting in the texted code:

AGGREGATOR_IN_ERROR (ACCOUNT_MISMATCH:ccscrape.106)

what does that mean?

    I'm having the same issue with PennyMac. I deleted the account and selected Add Account and went through the process to connect and got the attached error in Quicken.

    I also am experiencing the same error so it seems that it is not account specific but something more general in the service. Will monitor for results and any replies you get from PennyMac .... Please keep us posted in thread.

    Thanks .....

    I'm not going to do anything about this really. I'm just gonna try to reconnect in a month or so and see if the situation has magically fixed itself. It's worked for me in the past with other accounts.

    I had a similar problem with Express Web Connect with Sears (Citi) several months ago. I noticed with PennyMac that after I deactivated updates yesterday that I could not select the account and reconnect thru online services. I attempted to re-Add the account, but I got a message that stated Quicken was trying to resolve the issue. My last successful download from PennyMac was June 27th. Either Quicken or PennyMac has changed connection procedure. I would bet PennyMac has changed something to protect their data from cyberattacks. Be patient it will get fixed. But you may need to re-add your account at a later time to get it work IF you deactivated on online services as I did.

    OMG. Pretty much the response I expected to receive from PennyMac. Their canned response was based around the assumption that I was having an issue with a browser. SMFH

    Needless to say, my response to this garbage was quite sarcastic and belittling. I doubt I will receive meaningful assistance from these offshore morons.

    Did you ever get this resolved? Did you talk to PennyMac?

    I sent them a message and the idiot sent me instructions on how to clear my cookies in my browser. After I told them that this matter has nothing to do with Internet browsers they came back with "PennyMac is only compatible with Mint".

    I have sent them another reply asking for an explanation as to why I've been able to successfully use Quicken with PennyMac since Oct 2020.

    I'm guessing they are going to tell me they've discontinued Quicken integration. I'd really love to know the logic behind that. Does Quicken charge merchants to integrate? Vice versa?

    Also, I just selected to Add Account in Quicken. Searched for PennyMac and it now shows up. Provided the info. It found my account. Linked to existing. Completed successfully. Did an Update Now. Got CC-589 (unexpected error). A Google search provides little to nothing on this error number.

    I may try to delete my existing PennyMac account in Quicken and recreate it to see if that helps.

    Ok, so I deleted my PennyMac account in Quicken recreated it. It all connected and setup fine.

    Still looking forward to hearing what they say in their next response.

    Generally, yes, there is a fee for financial institutions to participate with Intuit's OFX service, which is what Quicken uses for its connectivity. I believe some basic banking accounts may not carry a fee, but I think most do.

    Since recreating my PennyMac account in Quicken and recreating it a few days ago, Quicken continues to update properly. Was this your experience?

    This is my current experience as well. While this did not work when the issue originally appeared, it does appear to work now.

    So is there a process for getting this in front of Quicken employees or is posting it here sufficient?

    Has anyone experienced the issue of being able to add PennyMac as an account, successfully inputting your PennyMac username and password, and receiving multiple requests to enter the two-factor verification code when prompted in Quicken, only to go into an endless loop of this until it ultimately errors out?

    I can already hear PennyMac blaming Quicken, and vice-versa. MFA is required (email, SMS text, or Google Authenticator codes), and it does not appear to be any way to disable this.

    Below is the transcript from my discussion with PennyMac regarding the issue I had. You'll need to start from the bottom.

    After waiting a week or so, after backing up, I deleted my PennyMac account from Quicken and readded it. Daily updates work fine now. I do not recall that it queried me for MFA tokens when readding it to Quicken.

    Hello [redacted],

    Unfortunately, the Quicken aggregator does not allow for our 2-Factor authentication process within our security features, which is designed to protect you as our customer. Because your security is important to us, this is not something we foresee changing in the future.

    Thank you, Jaimie

    Ahhh, there it is. The proverbial slough-off of responsibility by blaming a third party.

    Interesting that your "IT" department says you only support Mint while Quicken continues, to this day, to work fine with PennyMac.

    Hello,

    Our IT came back advising that at this time, we only support Mint. I was also advised to inform you to contact your third party application provider for any error messages that you are receiving.  I apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this matter may have caused you.

    Thank you,

    While they are reviewing this, I thought you might be interested to know that I removed my PennyMac account from Quicken then recreated it and connected to PennyMac. Did this about a week ago. Updates from PennyMac are working successfully every day since then.

    Why did you say that PennyMac is only compatible with Mint? Is there PennyMac documentation you were referring to which says this?

    Hi [redacted], 

    Thanks for your reply and our apologies for the previous response. Unfortunately, PennyMac is not compatible with any of the 3rd party financial tools with the exception of Mint. 

    We hope this clears things up.

    Regards,
    Sandra

    I fully understand TFA but your response is talking about Mint. Nowhere have I mentioned that I'm using Mint.

    Please re-read my original message. I AM USING QUICKEN.

    I apologize for the previous response. Unfortunately, the Quicken aggregator does not allow for our 2-Factor authentication process within our security features, which is designed to protect you as our customer. Because your security is important to us, this is not something we foresee changing in the future. However, to be able to add your loan to your financial aggregator Mint; you will need to successfully complete a 2 factor authentication process with them directly first to link your PennyMac account. Should you have any further issues with pairing your loan with Mint, please reach out to their customer service directly.

    Thank you,

    This issue has nothing to do with Internet browsers. It is an issue with PennyMac's system supporting integration with Quicken.

    If you are unfamiliar with Quicken, please escalate this to an agent who can help me with the issue.

    Thanks.

    Since initiating our loan I have had my PennyMac account connected to Quicken. In the last week or two, I'm unable to download PennyMac updates with Quicken. Is PennyMac having issues with their Quicken servers/infrastructure?

    Additionally, my latest mortgage payment was mid-July. After that payment posted Quicken pulled the latest info from PennyMac and updated the current loan balance, etc. successfully.

    But they "only support Mint". LOL
