The Texas Real Estate Commission is spreading the word that scammers are emailing license holders and posing as the government entity. The emails ask the license holder to provide information to TREC with threats that recipients could lose course credit for noncompliance. TREC says to disregard emails that ask you to provide information to TREC, especially anything that links to a third-party website.

If you receive a message from TREC with a payment request, do not respond to the sender and contact TREC at 512-936-3000. If you receive a suspicious message, email TREC with “SCAM Notice” as the subject line.
