Asked by Andrew from Maine
I have a question regarding ‘barn scams.’ I know the usual drill with ‘normal’ items, like selling your wares on eBay or Craigslist. Is there anything more to know when selling your old barn?
I did recently run into a traveling real estate scammer who tried to pretend like he was buying our house, only until he could solicit deposits from his prospective unwitting tenants.
He was going to convert it (or pretend to convert it) from residential to commercial. I never expected anything like that, really. Anything similar happen with any of your barn geeks?
