HAR reminds all members to exercise caution at all times when interacting with a prospective client. A few members have complained that they have received inappropriate calls and texts from a man/men using different names and numbers. The calls or texts typically begin sounding quite “normal,” with him inquiring about a specific property or expressing interest in buying a home in a certain neighborhood. But the moment they take a personal turn, you know this is not a legitimate real estate query. He will comment or ask about your physical appearance, and in the case of the foot fetish “creep,” inquire about your footwear, nail polish and other things that have nothing to do with real estate. HAR urges all members to use the free SafeShowings service and HAR’s VerifiedUser tool. Always call 911 right away if you feel threatened at any time.
