CAUTION TO ALL MEMBERS RE: REALTOR® SAFETY

BREB wishes to notify its members of a situation that recently occurred involving two of our members and a man by the name of of Mohammed Siddiqui.

Mr. Siddiqui approached at least two of our female associates, meeting them at their Brokerage offices late at night when staff had left on the pretense that he was looking to buy one or more homes. He then requested to view homes after 9:00 pm and offered to drive. In one instance, the conversation was completely inappropriate as he made suggestive comments and sexual inferences. In both instances our members were able to end the appointment and get away without any physical contact.

A complaint was filed yesterday with Peel Regional Police and Peel Regional Police met with Mr. Siddiqui to discuss the complaint filed against him. Apparently seven women were contacted by Mr. Siddiqui and the Police do not believe any further contact will be made.

No commission is worth taking a chance. Always make safety your first priority. Follow your gut instincts and the CREA REALTOR® safety tips  list . These situations remind us that we need to work safely.
