Legal Q&A | Using Form 355-T to Demand Funds from the Buyer
QUESTION: One of my listings went under contract this morning with an assurance from the buyer’s agent that the earnest money deposit and due diligence fee would be delivered by noon today. It is now 2 p.m., and the buyer’s agent is not responding to my messages. I think the buyer might be dragging their feet intentionally. What is the best way to motivate the buyer to deliver the money? Discover the Answer »
Recent report of "Virtual Kidnapping" impacts NC REALTORS®
NC REALTORS® has learned of a recent scam where a REALTOR® member (Broker in Charge) received a call from a phone number they trust (a broker) at a very odd time of the day. A man on the line said that he has kidnapped the broker and unless the BIC pays the ransom, harm will come to the broker. This is an upsetting case, and unfortunately, a very popular type of scam called “virtual kidnapping.”
If you get a call like this, remember that it’s fake, no matter how scary it sounds. Even if it feels really real, never wire money or pay by prepaid card to anyone who asks you to. If you’re worried about the call, get off the phone and get in touch with the relative or friend in question – just to reassure yourself. And then report it to the FTC. Learn more »
