REALTORS® are urged to be vigilant against a fraudulent phone call surfacing that is purporting to be representing “NAR health insurance.” The phone calls and text messages do not originate at the National Association of REALTORS®, the association warns. “The association won’t make unsolicited calls to enroll you in an insurance program or otherwise solicit your personal information,” NAR wrote. If in doubt about the legitimacy of a communication request from NAR, contact the Member Support team at 800-874-6500.
