Scam Watch

How to File a Complaint with the Federal Trade Commission

(Note, this is a popular video and sometimes takes a few moments to load and available)



In the Real Estate business, we are aware of scams that may occur with listings.  The most popular, bogus listings (on Craigslist for example) that state a home is for lease at a ridiculously low price.  The ads look legitimate, and may even provide an email address with the actual owners name(s); but, the email goes to the scammer and not the real owner of the property.  Craigslist is very proactive in assisting those who search on their site to be aware of scams and some of the things to watch for.  Unfortunately, the practice can help to catch these scammers by reporting to the website you find the post on.  You can also submit a complaint to the FTC: 

Before You Submit a Complaint

The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, collects complaints about companies, business practices, identity theft, and episodes of violence in the media.

Why: Your complaints can help us detect patterns of wrong-doing, and lead to investigations and prosecutions. The FTC enters all complaints it receives into Consumer Sentinel, a secure online database that is used by thousands of civil and criminal law enforcement authorities worldwide. The FTC does not resolve individual consumer complaints.

Your Privacy: How much personal information you provide is up to you. To learn how we safeguard your personal information, please read our Privacy Policy. If you don't provide your name and certain other information, it may be impossible for us to refer, respond to, or investigate your complaint.
