New Homeowner Scam
New Scam in Western Kansas
A real estate broker in western Kansas has reported a new scam that everyone should be aware of and watchful for. In the potentially dangerous scenario, a woman is claiming to be hired by the real estate company and saying she is at the listed home to take photos. A similar woman has also approached sellers saying she is from the bank and needs to change the locks on the home. Please make sure to tell your clients that you will let them know before sending any workers to their homes, and if someone approaches them without your prior notice, they should contact you to verify the work before letting anyone into their home.
