Important Wire Fraud Alert for Buyers

Please be aware that online banking/wire fraud is on the rise and the real estate industry is a frequent target given the large sums of money involved.

IMPORTANTLY, NEITHER YOUR REALTOR OR ANYONE AFFILIATED WITH OUR BROKERAGE WILL EVER SEND YOU ANY INFORMATION RELATED TO WIRE INSTRUCTIONS VIA EMAIL.   IF YOU SEE ANYTHING OF THIS NATURE FROM YOUR REALTOR OR OUR COMPANY, IT IS FRAUDULENT.  

Please take 2 minutes to watch the following video from the National Association of Realtors which discusses how cyber criminals are spoofing and/or hacking email accounts and sending emails with fake wiring instructions. These emails are convincing and sophisticated.  Always independently confirm wiring instructions in person or via a telephone call to a trusted and verified phone number. Never wire money without double-checking that the wiring instructions are correct.
