My phone has been ringing like crazy all morning long. Almost all the calls are about a new lease listing in Garland, TX at 3313 Ivanhoe.
Apparently some low-life has poached my listing and posted it on HotPads at $700. They’ve looked up the owner’s name and it’s made to look like a For Lease By Owner listing.
This is a scam! The guy tells a compelling story about being out of the country and asks you to wire him funds via Western Union.
Don’t fall for scams! If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. The best way to protect yourself is to work with a reputable and local leasing agent.
