Man claiming to be real estate agent reported to be false; agents beware of releasing information

RIVERSIDE – Recently, there have been reports of a man in the Southwest Riverside County area, calling on agents with homes listed in the MLS that are reported to have combo lockboxes on the home, according to the Southwest Riverside County Association of REALTORS (SRCAR).

The man introduces himself as a local agent and gives the valid CalBRE license number of that same agent. Please be aware that CalBRE license information is public information.

Anyone can pull up an agent’s number and office information and claim to be that person. This is an important reminder to real estate professionals to stay alert and aware.

Personal safety should always be a top priority. Although you may miss out on a sale, you may also be avoiding a potentially dangerous situation. In times like these, common sense goes a long way.

If something doesn’t seem safe or doesn’t feel right, find a way out. SRCAR® highly recommends the use of Supra Lockboxes for added protection for you and your clients.
