According to the Evening Star, a local estate agent has been fined £7,500 (plus £3,275 costs) for putting up fake ‘Sold’ signs.

A few years ago I was doing some work connected to a new estate agent and suggested that they put up a few sold signs in friends gardens to get their company name know. At the time it seemed a like a legitimate marketing strategy, but on reflection it is probably good that they did not listen to me after all.
