How to Access This Data
The Dealscan database is accessed through the internet at http://www.loanconnector.com. You will need to enter a username, password, and number called the secureID. To find these three items, you must acquire what we call the "Dealscan Token," which is a credit card sized device that contains the current secureID for accessing the site. The secureID for accessing the Dealscan website changes periodically, and the current ID is displayed on the Dealscan token. The current username and password that you will need are written on a card that is kept in the same holder with the token.
