Letters through doors wanting to buy your house

Recommended Posts

There are plenty of these people around. They offer you about half the true value of your house and sell the house on to people who can't get mortgages from the usual lenders, arranging the mortgage for them at huge interest rates so they make profit several times over.

I got one a while back in Hillsborough/Lower Walkley ish area... Looked handwritten but photocopied.

 

I suspect it's the same person who's been putting 'I'll buy your house' notices up all over the traffic lights about here and in town. They all have the same writing on them. Keep your eyes out for them if you haven't seen em, they all have some dodgy text number on them.

 

I suggest you don't do it!

Yep, we got one last week, sounds like the same thing. Our house isn't even up for sale, so it went in the bin.

I'd say that conclusively makes it a scam.

We had one of those a while ago and we're in Chapeltown. It had that creepy 'pretending to be handwritten but looked like it had been printed' look that politicians seem to use a lot these days.

 

I think it might even have been from a Julie...

I'm in Woodseats, just off the main strip, and I got one of these yesterday. I rent, so it went straight in the bin. Just pulled it out and it's from the elusive Julie! Bet The Star would love this (non) story!
