One of the many travails of being a broker is that sometimes, a guy who sounds really rich and respectable will contact you, and then you show him fancy, expensive properties, and he turns out to be a fraud who wants to take photos of himself in said properties and put them on social media. Then, and this is really crazy, a "21-year-old Asian student from London" will materialize and claim to have $400 million in the bank, and she's dead serious. These sneaky petes and how brokers handle them, over at the Daily News. [NYDN]
