We are hearing about all kinds of crazy scams and just want to warn Realtors® that if something sounds too good—it probably is.  If something sounds strange – check it out before making any move.  It’s always best to remember to verify identities and to never meet strangers alone.  The over friendly new “friend” may be looking for someone who will unknowingly help him with his SCAM.

People who SAY they have a lot of money usually don’t and people looking for referrals to banks, etc. should be given a list of local banks and sent out to do their own banking.  In today’s economy it’s a temptation to go an “extra mile” if a commission might be involved.  Just be sure you are on firm ground before working in an area that is not your specialty.  CAUTION should always be the rule to follow.
