LBAR warns consumers against real estate scams
The Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors (LBAR) is warning buyers, sellers, and renters to be on the lookout for phony advertisements on Craigslist and other internet services when looking for a potential home to purchase or a rental property or apartment. False advertisements for properties across the Central Kentucky region are cropping up. LBAR Realtor members have reported these issues to the association office. Specifically, these advertisements are aimed at stealing money from unsuspecting renters and buyers. In most cases, the perpetrator of the fraud is out of the country and claims to be unable to show the property or to provide additional photos when requested. LBAR also advises the local Realtor members to do appropriate searches for properties, to ensure properties they have listed are not being used by scam artists to execute this injustice.
