Early this morning, i felt the need to draft a series of 12 tips that an ordinary man can use as a detector to avoid the prevalent real estate scams mushrooming online.

I spared some time to turn it into an infographic. I am inspired by the thought attributed by Edmund Burke, that “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
