I’m a Realtor several years now and the last few years experienced spams through the Internet and false advertising from *Craig’s List that was snatched from the so called scammers from *Nigeria..so they say..promising residence at a discounted price and some how finding through *Tax records the owners name..They use the owners name @ Yahoo.com to make the transition more believable.
Furthermore..there is not such place as West Africa…
In closing, I find not putting the actual address in my Craigs List AD deters the scammers away.. I’ve got the national news media finally to post on prime time warnings to the general public looking for Real Estate. Not often enough but every little bit helps.. This last 3 years have been a nightmare for some of our Realtors and home owners because of this…
Any better suggestions?? Email me.
