This is a common practice in the real estate industry. When a customer requests a free appraisal or referral regarding the purchase of mortgage notes, many salesmen will take the homeowners money and hand them over to a brokerage firm where they continue to work for the brokerage firm. When an individual makes inquiries about purchasing mortgage notes, salesmen call and talk to the homeowner on the phone and try to get the cash from the homeowner. This is illegal in the State of Florida.
