First payed home inspections!

There was another post on here when it happened to a fellow inspector. He was further in than you. He had received the check and things began to go south because the check was bad.

Scam alert!!! I have received these in the past. They ask for your location then they find a house near you. Last time I put in a house about two hours away. Look up the property and call the listing agent. I bet He doesn’t know this guy.

Agreed. Last time I had the typical “I will like to know” intro by text, He asked me what areas I served, I said “what area do you need”? His response was “Florida”…LOL.
So my response was “tell me what county you need so I know what sheriff’s department to send your info to for your scam”.
Haha never heard back

My last one asked me where my service area was before giving the inspection address. It was an obvious scam, or they were basing thier next home purchase off my business address (either warrants teaching them a lesson) so I had the overnight fedex go to random addresses I googled halfway across the state.

“Oh, it was 5439 not 5539”. Three of those and he stopped texting me.

It’s great you caught it before doing the work or forking out money!

If the house is listed for sale, call the agents name and number to confirm you have access. That will immediately tell you id it is legit.

Be careful “subbing” things out. You open yourself to shared liability with that servicer. Better approach is to simply refer the contractor and have their deal be directly with the client.
