Well, it finally happened. Without getting into too much detail, I received a couple of emails last week concerning an out of state client looking for representation in a simultaneous closing for a multi-million dollar property in Springfield, Massachusetts. It started with an email from a supposed service coordinator who has a profile on AR (She also emailed me through AR). I was then introduced to the client via email. The "client" was asking for a contract that would allow two deals to take place. The first would allow my "client to buy a property with the second Buyer's money. My client would use the second Buyer's deposit in order to purchase the Million dollar property. . . . How "creative". Eventually everything would have to go through my Trust Account. . . . To all of my friends on AR who worked hard for their broker / attorney license to practice, BE CAREFUL!
With these solicitations, use your gut instict. If it sounds too good to be true, or if it sounds like an email you received from Nigeria, stay the hell away!
