Wiring Funds – CAUTION!

There’s been an upswing in a particularly insidious wire scam to steal money. Here’s how it works: hackers break into a real estate licensee’s e-mail account to obtain information about upcoming real estate transactions. After monitoring the account to determine the likely timing of the closing, the hacker will send an e-mail to the buyer, posing either as the title company representative or as the real estate agent. The fraudulent e-mail contains new wiring instructions or routing information and will request the buyer send transaction-related funds accordingly. Unfortunately, buyers have fallen for this scheme and have lost money. Never wire any funds without first verifying on the telephone, using a known telephone number, of the correct wiring instructions from the title company representative.
