Hi, I’m reaching out to see if you have availability tomorrow for a seller’s signing in your covered area. The seller’s are not working tomorrow and they are available at any time you’re free. The closing docs and their contact details will be shared via our secured mean first thing tomorrow morning. Fee is $380 Email us back if your interested. Jeff.
I think the grammar/spelling, lack of company info, high fee, and odd email address that it came from all contribute to one thing…SCAM!
Well, I’ve gotten some high-paying jobs from ‘off’ email addys with less info & worse grammar/spelling than that. BUT, not that high and there is always some co. info. So, I think you are right, but probably would have responded with a lot of questions. Then, when nothing happens, you KNOW it’s a scam.
Best thing to do when receiving one of these emails is to Google the company they claim to represent. If there’s a phone number, call it and try to determine if the email sender actually works there. You’ll know quickly if it’s a scam or not.
I was contacted by a law firm for a double Buyer/Seller package for $180. When I replied I had to log on to my email account and use my UN and PW to access a secure email. There was nothing at the end of that rainbow but panic and self-loathing. I had to reset my email password and hope that nothing evil was looming. It’s been ten days. It was a US law firm with contacts and everything but I still feel uneasy about the whole thing.
