We are a licensed real estate agency that got a call from a sales agent of RealtyBargains.com – well better said from an India-based cold call center. The agent promised 2-3 seller leads a month plus access to For-Sale-By-Owner and Foreclosure data. The latter was not of importance to us as this is publicly available data. So we were mainly signing up for this service in order to get seller leads. The cost after negotiating a little bit was about $100/month and there was no long-term contract required. We soon got E-Mails for FSBO and Foreclosures but never any seller leads. So when after the first month a customer service rep called to see if we’d like to extend the service, we mentioned that we missed any leads coming in. Guessing that this rep too was sitting somewhere in India, we quickly got another month for free and expected the leads to come in soon. Unfortunately nothing at all. After two months we didn’t get a single seller lead and have to rate this experience with SCAM.
