This morning I checked my e-mail, and imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw three different inquiries to the three listings I have posted on Craigslist. I clicked on the first one, and it read like this:
"Hi; I've just looked at a house of yours on Cl that I am highly interested in. here is the property ad on Cl:
Is it still available? If so please email me back as soon as you get a chance.. very interested.
So I go and reply to the first e-mail with a well-thought out and slightly lengthy response, and send it. Instantly I get this one back:
"Hey thanks for getting back to me about the property. We specialize in
short sales and can get properties moved quickly. If you're nearing
foreclosure or just wanting to get rid of your place, let us talk to
you. It wont cost you a dime.
Please give me some quick info on my website and I'll get in touch shortly.
Thanks alot, I'm looking forward to talking with you!"
Then I notice that the other two inquiry e-mails about my listing are worded exactly the same. Nothing like a big fat let-down before 8am on a Monday morning. So please watch out for these annoying so-and-so's.
I was overcome with a vindictive streak, so I went to the website and entered my phone number. I found out the name of the loss mitigation company behind this, if anyone wants to know who it is please contact me. (I then went to my YouMail account and set up a personal "Disconnected" greeting to end the calls).
