A number of real estate agents have received Zillow-branded emails from a scammer advertising fake leads, reports Estate Agent Today.
It’s reported that at least one real estate agent has been tricked into submitting credit card information for the fake leads.
Zillow Group said recently in a statement that it recently warned agents through email and social media about the con and is “actively working with law enforcement to fight scams and spam like this.”
Estate Agent Today reported that a message sent Wednesday to Realtor Kim Rockburn from an email address with the domain zillow.pro congratulated Rockburn on receiving “two new premium real-estate leads from ZillowAds.”
The scam email featured the online real estate company’s logo alongside details on the fake leads along with bogus messages from them. It told Rockburn: “Note: You have to unlock these premium leads in order to see complete contact details.”
