WARNING: If you receive a text message that appears to be from the National Association of REALTORS® and asks for payment of a fine or sales tax on a prize, please be aware that it is not from NAR!

In one version of the scam, a scammer levies false ethics accusations against a member and demands payment of a fine. Additionally, NAR has seen versions of a text purportedly from NAR, telling the recipient they have won a prize (a car or a TV) sponsored by NAR. The association has reported both variants of the scam to the FBI.

NAR urges its members and state and local REALTOR® associations to be on high alert for email, text, and online fraud.
