The Internet is an interesting place. We can be anyone we want to be, and so can the people we meet online.
About a year ago I met with a prospective buyer who found me on the Internet and he turned out to be more than a little scary. He wasn't at all interested in buying real estate. He wanted to meet me because of something that he found on the Internet about me.
We met in a coffee shop where I often meet with clients and write contracts.
