Real Estate Leads/ Mortgage Lead Generation Scam: How It Works

(with video below) Mortgage lead generation and fake services. This year, one of the biggest scams around is the Real Estate Leads or Mortgage Leads Generation scam. Let's take a closer look.

You come across a company that promises a great opportunity to make money. They will set you up with a website showing properties to sell or rent, meant to harvest leads for mortgage companies.

Depending on how many leads you generate by operating your website, you could earn up to $80 per piece.

The scam occurs when the company offers you a promotion campaign for your website worth $10,000, for only $4,000. As several fake testimonials guarantee that you can generate hundreds of leads, you do the quick math and decide to join the program.
