SCAM ALERT/ILLEGAL ACTIVITY - Reported by a Member sent by NOMAR:I personally came in contact with this in two areas, one is Slidell and the other is the West bank. Individuals are placing signs on poles and staked into the ground that state something like "House for $55,000 and a phone number". These individuals go to vacant houses and strip the house of anything that would indicate the property is listed. REALTOR signs are removed, if it is a HUD home the Property Managers sticker that is in the window is removed, the sign sheet in the house is removed. How they gain access is not confirmed however in two cases they represented themselves as agents and called for lockbox codes.
The consumers who call from the posted signs are taken to these houses and are told by the individual who answers those phones that they own the house. That they have two offers but if the consumer brings a cash down payment right away they can buy the house and they request $2000.00.The HUD attorney's are aware of this and I have personally reported two incidents to the Sheriff in Jefferson Parish. I understand from the LREC that one individual was brazen enough to remove the yard sign of a Broker and replace it with his own. In this instance a consumer gave them cash and then reported them and I understand the Attorney General is handling this.
It is unknown if these individuals are licensees or not. I have handed over the names and phone numbers that I received from consumers to the Sheriff and to HUD. It is my thought that the real estate community needs to be aware of what is going on so they can be extra vigilant.GYMBEAUX NOTE: My wife and I saw a similar sign at the I-12 Exit at Airport Road. $55,000 and a phone number, yellow background.
