CREA has informed RAHB of some new spam targeting members. In some cases they attach a logo of REALTOR.ca to give the illusion that they are from REALTOR.ca. The offenders are using the domain name (realtor.com-buyers.info) . This same spam appears to have been used to target other real estate websites from time to time.
There is another case where individual listings are copied and used as the basis for a fraudulent ad on another website (like Craig’s List or Kijiji).
Please see the pictures below for some examples of the spam.
Please click the blue button below to see the response from CREA’s President Jason Stephen regarding how CREA handles these matters.
If you find any messages that are suspected spam, please contact RAHB.
