Scam alert - Did you get this today too?

By
Real Estate Services with Marte Cliff Copywriting

Scammers really should check their lists before they send their mail.

If they're sending it to people who can't possibly have a real estate listing, it's ascam lie. That means there HAS to be some ulterior motive for sending it.

That makes it scary to me, and my bet is that hundreds of real estate agents got this same message. If I was still an agent, I just might have fallen for it.

Here's what it said:

 

Your real estate listing was featured in today's News Digest International (www.newsdigest.co).

 

We look forward to hearing from you again in the future!

 

Sincerely,

 

Lisa Davis
News Digest International

Since I haven't held a real estate license now for about 7 years...

I definitely didn't click to see where it would take me and my efforts to "look behind" the address to see the actual link were not successful. (Did I mention, I'm no techie. I was afraid to "copy link location" for fear I'd end up somewhere dangerous.)

Came to read the article, but your web page is a mess with type overlapping and photos out of place. Just thought you'd want to contact your page designer.

And then... after submitting my comment, the page reloads and it clear. Still might want to look into it...

Sara - I don't know where I'd look, since this is the Active Rain platform. Sometimes it does get wonky.

Lisa Davis is alive and well.  She is now sending emails to agents that haven't worked for me for over 5 years, have moved out of state and may not even be licensed.  But, according to newsdigest.co, this agent is being recognized for "outstanding service."  What a load of dog doo doo.

What is newsdigest.co? And why are they so full of dog droppings?
