Suit accuses Move Inc. of fraud

12 Jan 2018

A former employee of Move Inc., the parent company of Realtor.com, has sued the company in Los Angeles, claiming the company defrauded clients.

The former employee claims Move Inc charged its clients for services they never asked for or received, and charged their credit cards without permission. The company denied the charges and said it will “defend the case vigorously.”

Brian Bobik, a former Move Inc. sales rep, said he was fired last March in retaliation for complaining about the practices, and because he requested accommodations for a disability. He told Inman News, which covered the lawsuit extensively, “ that Realtor.com practices were “unethical and fraudulent.”

“There are so many lies told over the telephone to get real estate agents to pay for these leads,” he said, adding that in a given lead package, half the leads promised to agents turn out to be “bogus.”

Janice McDill, a Realtor.com spokesperson, told Inman, “The allegations are without merit and we will defend the case vigorously. Beyond that, as a matter of policy on legal matters, we will have no further comment.”
