Female REALTORS® in the Pittsburgh area are receiving calls from an individual identifying himself as Dwayne Bergeman. He states that he is relocating from Oregon, but will not answer simple questions. The caller insists he wants to see houses in a high value price range. A man using the same name has already been reported in Boston, MA and Little Rock, AR
All members are encouraged to exercise extreme caution if contacted by this individual. As always we urge you to never meet individuals alone at a property, especially those you are meeting for the first time, and to follow other safety protocols established by your office.
