This is a very serious blog. I can not begin to tell you how many stories I’ve heard about people being scammed by someone acting as a Realtor, is a Realtor or homeowner who’s gonna rent their place out. There are some really horrible people scamming others. Here’s a couple of examples:
One Licensed NV Realtor was managing rentals for many landlords. What he was doing was receiving the rent monies and not paying the landlords saying that the renters were late on payments etc. He got away with this for months. Taking the rent checks and putting the money in his pockets. He did eventually get caught and return to his country never to be found. He was fined by the NV Real Estate Division, but I’m quite sure non of the landlords and the RE Division will never be paid back. The payments in fines were over $100,000. I can’t remember the exact amount. Heck maybe it was near $300,000. Seriously, How can someone do that to others?
How about all the people who scam people off of CL and lots of other websites. I have heard stories of People posing as Real Estate Agents. Sending the lease agreement and collecting money, NEVER to be heard from again… YOU CAN NOT trust all Realtors. Please read below:

Call their office number, check to make sure there is an agent by that name affiliated with them.
