There is so much to say about unlicensed realtors. The bottom line it is against the law and unethical practice to deceive people that you are a realtor. There are stiff penalties when they are caught, many times their license expired. DBPR Department Bureau Professional Regulation is an government organization formed in Tallahassee that issues all license's to all legit businesses that qualify and comply to Florida standards. Unfortunately we are living in the scam times and some may do anything to convince you to buy a produce or hack bank accounts and try to get you to compromise. This is why the (CFPB) Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has formed July 21, 2011 in congress, this is the watchdog group policing all consumers other than real estate. The Dodd-Frank takes the credit for enacting this act in lieu of the 2007-2008 recession within the Federal Reserve. It's great that we have such organizations in place to protect the consumer.
