Arrest for Real Estate Fraud

Arrest for Real Estate Fraud

Police investigating a real estate fraud complaint in South Auckland have arrested a 53 year old woman. She will be bailed to appear in the Pukekohe District Court next Wednesday (28 August).

The woman is alleged to have defrauded victims whilst acting as a real estate agent for the sale of properties in South Auckland. In one of the cases, an overseas couple paid a large sum of money on a Clevedon property that was not for sale.

Detective Senior Sergeant Aaron Proctor says the arrest is of some comfort to the victims but they are still out of pocket of a significant sum of money.

Proctor says that anyone who is purchasing property should ensure the real estate agent is registered and is genuinely authorised to be involved in the sale of a property. Call the Real Estate Agents Authority on 0800 367 7322 for information if you are concerned about the behaviour of an agent and do not pay money out in any circumstances if you have any doubts or concerns.
