Be advised that a hacker is pretending to be a legitimate REALTOR® in an attempt to get true REALTORS® to click on a link that contains malicious programs. Specifically, someone is pretending to be Tammy Williams, a legitimate REALTOR® in California. This person is contacting Agents who have properties listed on our Public Property Search site. In the email correspondence that follows this person claims to have an offer that includes a $5,000 check and proof of funds that are available by clicking on a link in the email. But in reality, these links go to a program that attempts to install malicious programs on your computer. Be sure to keep your antivirus programs up to date, and avoid clicking on any link whose address appears suspicious. You can discover the true address of a link by hovering your cursor over the link and reading the ensuing pop-up. If you receive such an email you should consider contacting the alleged Agent by using a phone number obtained through a different source besides the email.
