WARNING AGENTS -Fake Buyer

If you get a phone call from a buyer who claims to have just won the Florida lottery, think twice before showing him any homes.
According to the Massachusetts police, more than a dozen agents in the South Coast region of the state have received calls from the alleged “buyer,” who has been documented using the aliases Carlos, Tony, and Mike.
The caller blocked his phone number on each occasion and also refused to provide a last name or a phone number. He also reportedly speaks to the agents as if he met them a few weeks ago at another showing, then becomes aggressive if the agents fail to “recognize” him or meet him for showings or at a local casino.
The man also may call as early as 6:30 am or as late as 11:30 pm, and appears to have knowledge about the agents’ interests and hobbies as well as their listings[1].
Please be safe and meet your clients first at your office.   Apparently no agents have met with this buyer but you cannot be too careful!!!
