I had my listing on Trulia through list hub. Recently I learned that somebody ( no name agent) with a land line phone 601-789-4374 had copied my listing and put it for rent on Trulia rentals on an incredible value of $800/ month!
A more vigilant renter came to see the house; found my for sale board and called me to find out more. I further learned that they were told that the owner is in UK and the no name agent sent them rental application to submit and then they would get the key of the house in mail!Â
I couldn't believe it and so I asked these people to send me the link and told them that this is a scam.
Here is the email I received:
We spoke with you on the phone this evening about 8425 Black wolf Home renting. We believe it's such a fraud please check at the link and contact with the real estate company called Trulia to clean out this. http://www.trulia.com/rental/3058308723-8425-Blackwolf-Dr-Madison-WI-53717
So people should not respond no name listings and if something seems to be too good to be true, it is not!Â
I was upset to see my listing and sellers house pictures taken by me misused in this way!
So what should we do to prevent these type of things happening again! Â
If you have any question, please contact me.
