San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2016
Recently someone posing as Tim J. Gullicksen has been posting ads on Craigslist and other sites advertising condos for rent at unbelievably low prices. The photos and marketing verbiage are lifted directly from properties that are currently listed for sale. The impostor provides an email address and phone number so that prospective tenants can make contact. Gullicksen is now stressing to everyone in the real estate community that neither he nor his group work in the rental market.
If someone cannot show a rental unit in person, but rather offers to hold it in exchange for a deposit wired to a bank account, beware! Never send money to an online advertiser. Never give personal information to a landlord or property manager until after visiting the rental unit in person.
Tim J. Gullicksen and the Gullicksen Group have spent untold hours tracking down the bank accounts of these impostors, filing police reports in multiple states, and flagging dishonest listings on various websites. Unfortunately, it is all too easy for the perpetrators to open new phony bank accounts, create new email addresses and continue their fleecing of an unsuspecting public.
Don't become a victim of online fraud! For more information about how to spot real estate fraud, call Tim Gullicksen or the Gullicksen Group.
