How can I recognize a fraudulent listing?

Fraudulent listings can be identified through several signs and indicators, including:



This includes exaggerating the advantages of the property unrealistically and asserting benefits that lack evidential support.


Lack of basic information:

Fraudulent listings often lack basic information such as the company name or property address, making them more likely to be untrue.


Use deceptive or misleading language:

Deceptive language is used to attract attention and persuade consumers to purchase without actual support.


Focus on emotion instead of reason:

Fraudulent advertising often uses emotional elements, such as poignant images or stories, to convince consumers to buy a product or service.


Additional tips for detecting fraudulent listings include:

  • Meet in public places to check out the seller
  • Go and inspect the property and verify its availability
  • Do not transfer money in advance
  • Do not pay any money without documents to prove it
  • Find additional information before purchasing.
  • Check the company's credibility and find out user reviews.
  • Be careful if the offers seem unrealistic.
  • Check cheap or surprise offers carefully.
