Yesterday I received a text from an unknown number "Hello". I asked who it was and they replied with the name of a fellow agent who is a friend of mine on Facebook. I was suspicious but wanted to know what it was about so I replied and asked what was up. (My friend has a 786 area code and this was a 305 area code). In addition, they misspelled her last name with an extra letter at the end.
The texter went on to say they were working with some high-end clients, needed help and asking what I was doing that day. I said "sure" and they went on to explain they were working with Marlins players and they tended to be "wild" so they wanted a sexy girlfriend to help. They said "they like how you look".
I said I was busy and what exactly were they asking and who was this really... they stopped reply. Meanwhile, I message my friend and turns out she gets the same exact messages all the time. I belong to a group on Facebook for ladies in real estate and posted a warning. Apparently, this is happening all over with almost identical verbiage being used.
I have reported this to the Miami Association of REALTORS and spreading the word here as well. I am not sure what the end result is supposed to be and wondering if anyone has any further information. In the meantime, I find this rather disturbing because this person obviously knows my friend.
Any help would be appreciated and please spread the word!!!!! I have Googled this and find nothing.
