Shame Shame Shame! This louse gives us all a bad rap! This serial thief abused his real estate license by stealing from homes on the market. He gained access with his lockbox key. He targeted upscale suburbs outside of San Francisco. He'd been arrested years before for the same crime but apparently he was at it again. Luckily, a 12 year old's webcam caught him red-handed!!
I pulled up Disciplinary Action from the California Department of Real Estate. Apparently, his license was "outright revoked" July 5, 2011. See below
If your house is for sale, please remove all valuables. Take inventory before and after each showing/open house. Be sure your realtor installs a lockbox that logs who enters and at what times. (Combo locks won't suffice)...and I ain't telling you to spy but I suppose it can't hurt to leave your tween's webcam rolling!
Two thugs assaulted me for my iphone today. They attacked, we struggled & they punched me in the face, but I still didn't let go for some odd reason. Police took my statement and didn't sound too optimistic about finding them.
After all the adrenaline has settled, I have a headache and my jaw is getting sore. We'll see if there is bruising where they socked me tomorrow. But overall I am fine. I'm a big girl, I will survive. I know it could have been a lot worse.
Safety Lessons Learned:
1. Avoid using your fancy phone/labtop in public, makes us prime target. Be aware of your surroundings (so hard since we are so into our smartphones now)
2. Don't sit by any exit door in MUNI/BART/METRO. The robbers wait for door to open, one grabs ur phone, the other blocks you, and they flee out the closing door before u can react
3. Sit in train with security/police officer or conductor in plain sight.
4. Sit in a seat that is ensconced so it is robber hard to get to you, and harder to escape.
5. Be thankful for all (y)our blessings.
Be safe out there, my friends!
