i got this same call. When I pushed back she hung up on me... I've seen this scam before with REO PRO. These calls are from criminals, plain and simple.
Yep. We've been throwing this "company" under the bus for a few weeks now.
This thread is a good read.
Olivia, time to change company's are start working for someone reputable it seems to me. I've been doing REO's for over 15 years and not once have I ever been asked to pay a fee upfront on a property. NEVER! Who in their right mind would even consider doing so? Good lick, you are going to need it.
I just received a phone call from a Shelly Patterson with this same company asking for the $449.00 one time fee. From the beginning it sounded too good to be true. While she was talking, I googled reviews and thank you so much for posting the scam information.
Hilarious - I just received a call from them (constant name changes) and not only did the "asset manager" become upset when I told him it was a scam to get my $400 but also he insulted me, yelled at me and called back twice - even leaving a message with more insults!
I got the call this morning. Ask to have an email sent with the information. So, I got an email with basically the same thing. The ASSET MANAGER told me they had an asset in my area, but I did not get that info! I feel for this scam once and that was enough for me.
HA! The rep stated "I work with the local banks and courts to find properties to assign to experienced REO listing agents". So I guess they are working for us, the agents. Is that the most inane statement made, ever???? Don't asset managers find agents to list the bank's properties, not find properties to list with the agents? LMAO!!! I hope they catch these people soon. I know Lear has advertised for help on Indeed.com. I envision the employer telling the clueless employee to look for properties advertised on the foreclosure list in the local paper and call the agent with the spiel (uh, script). The employee, or independent contractor, probably has no idea how REO disposition works.
