There was another nasty one that was made to appear like a signed counter offer that needed signing urgently. For the hungry realtor it was like a blood bait for a channel cat, wait 3 seconds, set the hook and pull. Appraisers need to be wary of those emails from lonely Russian girls partially robed who are selling those enhancement products.Watch out for RE oriented emails. I had one this morning. The address is an .edu extension...I see that a lot in emails flagged by the host. This one invited you to view details of a listing you supposedly had inquired about. This is apparently going to agents on the MLS...seems those addresses are broadcast as I get a dozen or so daily from known agents wanting me to help sell some hot new property.
When you get one, report it as SPAM or PHISHING. By mousing over the name you generally get the email address. any thing foreign like .ru or .eu etc. as well as those with .edu extensions are sure fire spam red alert.
