This is a recent scam, with reports beginning in early 2018. They are offering making purchase offers, unsolicited, via phone for Mexican properties. Of course you must wire money for fees, (between 3-7K) and here is where the scam starts. Using multiple alias. None of the names shown have profiles on the website and no professional profiles of these individuals can be found anywhere on the web. One reports claims they want to use "American Finance" for escrow, but there is no record of this company online.
