Attorneys and Real Estate Agents:
Protect Clients from Cyber Crime and Wire Fraud

Henry L. Shulruff photoThe threat is real, attempts on agents' accounts are frequent. All of us in the financial services industry must be vigilant about the ever-increasing threat of fraud and implement processes to minimize the risk of being victimized.

Attorney agents: Please download our flyer, Don't Fall Victim to Wire Fraud Schemes. Review it with your associates and staff and make sure your practices are in compliance. Take special note of Item 2: "...a party should never use contact information supplied in an email they receive for confirmation, including wire instructions for transmitting funds to the closing agent and for making payoffs of mortgage loans."

Also, see our flyer for consumers, Wire Fraud Alert. Attorney agents and real estate professionals, please feel free to print and distribute it to clients. Click the image below to access the PDFs. Questions? Contact us.
