In the past 6 months, the Association has been notified of numerous scams involving Craigslist, Zillow, realtor.com, vacant lots, rentals, fraudulent documents, etc. The best way to combat these scams is to sign up for FOREWARN, an OBAR REALTOR® FREE member benefit. Easily check background information, addresses, phone numbers, and more. Heads up-if a number comes up as “NO RECORD FOUND”, more than likely it is a burner phone and part of some scam. When in doubt –trust your gut!
