SCAM Alert – Warning to Real Estate Agents

Agents need to be aware of a new ID scam doing the rounds of real estate offices. This time the scammers are using a fax. The two-page fax attempts (unsuccessfully) to appear official. It purports to be from the Australian Government including a fake coat of arms, references to forms (NRL1 and NRL2) and HM Revenue & Customs. It comprises of a letter headed as an application to receive rental income without deduction of Australian tax, signed by Macauley Sanders, and a form that collects personal information of clients.

According to information on this link, real estate agents in the United Kingdom are also being targeted by the fraud.
