OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is warning consumers and realtors about what he says is a fraudulent realtor complaint website.
Pruitt says the website Realtor-complaints.com has used the REALTOR registered trademark to promote the website and its reviews.
The National Association of Realtors is investigating the website for an alleged string of falsified reviews. Every rating for the contractor, roofer or realtor is listed as a bad review and in order to remove the complaints, the site asks the professional to pay up to $100 to an account in the Bahamas.
Pruitt says Oklahoma consumers need to be wary of information provided on a website unless they're familiar with the company. He says professionals who have been victimized by the scam should contact his office's Public Protection Unit.
