Attorney General Scott Pruitt has issued a warning for Oklahoma real estate licensees and consumers to be alert of a fraudulent real estate complaint site.
The website, REALTOR-complaints.com, is being investigated for fraudulent information, including falsified negative reviews. Every rating listed on the website – including those for contractors, roofer and real estate professionals – is listed with a bad review. The website asks each reviewed professional to pay up to $100 to an account in the Bahamas in order to have the review removed from the website.
“Oklahoma consumers need to be wary of information provided on a website unless they are familiar with the company,” General Pruitt said. “We urge any professionals who have been a victim of this scam to contact our Public Protection Unit.”
To report suspected fraud or scams to the Attorney General’s Office, contact (405) 521-2029, (918) 581-2885 or PublicProtection@oag.ok.gov.
