Fake National Realtor Association Notice

How the scam works:

There is a new scam targeting real estate professionals in the United States, Canada and Australia. If you are an agent or broker, you may be receiving these days an email or text message claiming to be from the National Association of Realtors (USA), Canadian Real Estate Association or Real Estate Institute of Australia.

Using official verbiage, the message informs that the organization has received complaints about you "using racist remarks in conversation with your clients". The accusatory notice ends with a fine that you should pay to the association in order to avoid losing your licence.

> You are then taken to a link where a payment option is provided.

Victims are ordered to pay the "violation" within a certain amount of days otherwise they have to pay the consequences.

How to avoid:

Don't click on the link. Delete the message. If in doubt, call the association and demand an explanation about the accusation.

How To Report:

Make your family and friends aware of this scam by sharing it on social media. You can also officially report the questionable auto dealerships to the Federal Trade Commission using the link below:
