A new scam is circulating in which tricksters pose as real estate agents and other trusted professionals, asking for financial “favors” from unsuspecting victims. In one example of the scheme, a scammer may pretend to be a real estate practitioner asking his or her coworkers to pick up hundreds of dollars in gift cards for closing gifts to clients. This initial warning was issued by Arkansas Attorney General, but the scam has the potential to expand beyond Arkansas and into other states.
