This does not surprise me. I arranged to view a property where I was genuinely go make and offer on the spot if the internal inspection went well. They never turned up, When I called they said agent has just left and was on her way. Half an hour later the office was closed. When I called the next day they denied the viewing had been arranged. Their calls are now blocked on my phone. ...
