RECA Consumer Alert: Mobey (Moby) Real Estate
Calgary, Alberta - Multiple consumers have contacted the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) about the activities of a company referring to itself as Mobey (or Moby) Real Estate, in Edmonton.
Mobey Real Estate is not a licensed real estate brokerage in Alberta nor are any of the individuals listed on the Mobey website licensed as real estate professionals.
Mobey has been contacting consumers with offers of work-from-home employment opportunities. These emails frequently indicate that Mobey is recruiting assistant property managers and other similar positions. Emails ask the recipient to complete an employment contract, including providing personal information and bank account information.
RECA and the Better Business Bureau of Central and Northern Alberta are warning consumers about these employment opportunities through Mobey Real Estate, and we encourage you to send any emails you receive from a @mobyestate.com email address to your local authorities.
Consumers can find out if an individual is a licensed real estate professional through RECA’s website at www.reca.ca. Use the “Searching for an Industry Professional” tool. If you have concerns about unsolicited employment opportunities, please contact your local Better Business Bureau.
