A Warning about Wiring Instruction Scams


Please make sure that you ALWAYS call and confirm wiring instructions with the title company/attorney’s office. NEVER accept wiring instructions from email alone without verbally confirming them. Scam artists are very sophisticated these days and will copy a title company’s letterhead and will make it appear perfectly legitimate; they will hack the title company’s email and appear to confirm it with you. By the time you discover it’s a scam the money has already been wired outbound to somewhere overseas.

Please be cautious and always confirm no matter how legitimate the PDF appears.
