Steve Agardi Imposter
Recently we encountered an unfortunate situation where an imposter was posing online as our own broker, Steve Agardi. A client, who shall remain anonymous, was searching through Craigslist.com where she came upon a listing and she reached out to the supposed Steve. The Steve imposter then contacted her from 2 different phone numbers. One number’s area code was 516, obviously a New York number, not quite too suspicious. However, the odd thing was that the second number that had called her had a +2 area code meaning that the source of the call came all the way from …. this is where it gets weird….AFRICA! This was a red flag since it’s quite obvious that the real Steve does not reside in Africa. The ad has since then been deleted off Craigslist.com.
So today we are asking all of you, our clients and future clients, to be wary of certain ambiguous ads relating to EXIT Realty One. We really need your help in stopping this since this was not the first time that this has happened. Back in December, another bogus listing under Steve’s name was posted on Mapliv.com.
Everyone please be aware that Steve’s real cell phone number starts with area code 718 and any number different from that is NOT Steve. Steve’s real email address is email@example.com NOT firstname.lastname@example.org. EXIT Realty One does NOT operate through yahoo.com email services. Also, be aware that EXIT Realty One DOES post on Craigslist.com but the email associated with our account is email@example.com and NOT firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be on the lookout for anymore fraudulent listings under Steve Agardi’s name. If you do spot one, please kindly screenshot a picture and email it to email@example.com along with a web address link with subject line “Fake Listing.” We really need your help in resolving this issue! Please be watchful and we are sincerely sorry if this situation causes any problems for our clients.
