Wow, this is scary. I just called the Karen at the number listed 714-858-8355 and a gentleman answered "Thank you for calling LPN, how can I help you" when I asked what is LPN, he just hung up. This is definetly fraud. Please report.

The same house, same picture is up for sale ; the address is 1551 Josie $749,000 Listing Agent is Sue La Bounty of First Team R.E.

She should be notified.

Larissa - when you see one of those you should press the "FLAG" button, and report it to Trulia as suspected fraud. They'll look into it, and if they agree, will block the listing.
