A Trulia Question for Fellow Real Estate Agents
I received a call this afternoon from a buyer I'm currently working with about a phone call she received from someone claiming to represent Trulia.
The caller did not identify himself and there was no phone number that came up that she could call back for confirmation - just a bunch of zeros.
The caller was asking if she was currently working with an agent. My buyer responded that she was but did not give out any other information.
When she hung up, she realized this sounded very strange and thought to call me right away to see if this was legitimate.
I've never heard of this before and it doesn't sound right.
This buyer initially contacted me through Trulia, in regard to another listed property. I very much doubt that Trulia follows up with consumers who log onto the site, to see if the agent in question has responded to the buyer, in the name of customer service.
Is this another real estate agent trolling for business or an even more insidious scam?
