Too-bad-so-sad. Toasted like a marshmallow.

Services for Real Estate Pros

Just a little FYI, for all you spammers out there.

If you post a profile, and your profile reads like a typical ActiveRain profile, designed to fool we ActiveRain support people, something like we see each and every morning, for example "Professional management agency, specializing in investment properties in Denver, Colorado", but the ISP used to create your profile is from New Delhi, India.  You're not gonna get past the bloodhounds.

Ya gonna get deleted.  It's just that simple.

You might even be legit!  Who knows!?  Maybe you paid some third-party fivrr-dude, dudette (or non-binary?) to post your profile in a dozen places across the globe, and this is how they chose to plop you onto ActiveRain, but it's gonna get you 'flamed' on ActiveRain.

buh-bye, too-bad-so-sad... ya wasted your hardly-earned five-bucks!
