Alleged Florida board scam targeting real estate agents is back -- who's behind it?

  • In March, Florida Realtors urged its 165,000 members to ignore bills for $225 from an entity claiming to be the “Florida Board of Realtors."
  • Now, the scam and site appear to be back with a new name.
  • A NAR complaint reveals the identity of a bankrupt Boynton Beach skin care exec behind original alleged scam website.

Agents, be on the lookout: If you’ve recently gotten an invoice demanding $225 from an organization calling itself the Florida Real Estate Board, don’t pay it. That entity is the same one allegedly behind the fake “Florida Board of Realtors” mailers that went out earlier this year. It appears the alleged scammers are at it again, but with a new name.
