NAR Issues Fraud Alert Over Suspicious Insurance Calls

If you receive a phone call or text claiming to be from “NAR health insurance,” it’s fraud, the National Association of REALTORS® is warning its members.

NAR says it has received a number of reports concerning unsolicited robocalls being made to members that are claiming to represent “NAR health insurance.” REALTORS® who receive requests for personal information via phone or text from an unknown phone number should always be extra vigilant and not respond, NAR says.

“The association won’t make unsolicited calls to enroll you in an insurance program or otherwise solicit your personal information,” NAR says.

To check the legitimacy of a communication or request from NAR, members can contact NAR’s Member Support team at 800-874-6500 or contact NAR via live chat or email.

Members can also learn about insurance products available through the REALTOR Benefits® Program and REALTORS® Insurance Marketplace.
