Last year San Luis Obispo County placed number one in the state of California for real estate fraud and number four nationally. This unusually high rate of real estate scamming points to a serious need for education to protect individuals from falling victim to these crimes. Learning how to prevent, avoid, and report potential real estate fraud activity may help to ensure that you do not become the next victim. Host Fred Munroe talks with Ruby Raymond and Joe Prian, President and Vice-President, with RESAFE (Real Estate Scam and Fraud Exposure), along with Investigator Fred Pflum, with the County of San Luis Obispo Office of the District Attorney, Bureau of Investigations about this serious issue and the resources this program offers to our communities.
For further information, you can reach RESAFE at this link or the one above. By phone, you can reach their Referral Hotline at (866) 749-2292. You can also obtain a fraud claim form directly from the DA's Real Estate Fraud webpage.
