NAR warns of text message scam targeting members
NAR is warning members that if you receive a text message asking for payment of a fine or sales tax on a prize, it is not from them. In one version of the scam, a scammer levies false ethics accusations against a member and demands payment of a fine. Additionally, NAR has seen versions of a text purportedly from NAR, telling the recipient they have won a prize (a car or a TV) sponsored by the National Association of REALTORS. NAR has reported both variants of the scam to the FBI.
