Yesterday, a group called Florida Realtors sent out a warning that an imitation group group calling themselves the Florida Board Of Realtors is sending out fake letters and emails telling agents they were in danger of having their licenses suspended.
The website that the scammers created looks legitimate when someone first visits it, but many of the links go to dead ends. However, there is an address where agents are supposed to mail a paper check (for $225).
Given how elaborate a set-up this was we wanted to let our customers know to be on the lookout for something that looks professional at first glance.
To see what the letter looks like, go to the Florida Realtors announcement.
