Redfin Scam Alert..

posted Jan 24, 2018, 6:12 PM by Brian G. Walsh
We’re reaching out to warn you about a recent string of false advertisements that have been sent in Redfin’s name to agents in the community, including Partner agents. These messages are not from Redfin. If you receive an email offering the opportunity to pay $10 for extra Redfin referrals, please immediately delete the email and block the sender. Redfin’s legal team is actively investigating solutions to help prevent these messages from reaching you. 

Please review the information below so you can protect yourself from being scammed. All of the information is based on feedback we have gathered from both from Partner and non-Partner agents.  

Here’s what we know:

  • The offer for $10 referrals was not generated or endorsed by Redfin. 
  • Agents are being contacted via both text and email.
  • Messages will include Redfin's logo.
  • Your interactions with the offer can be tracked via the message, meaning you should not open, respond to, or engage with these communications in any way.

​Requests will resemble the message below:

Redfin does not sell customer information, nor do we ask you to pay any additional fees for referral generation. If you are ever contacted with an opportunity to pay upfront fees for our referral services, please contact us immediately at partner-agents@redfin.com or 253-271-8436.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or additional details.
