How to Avoid E-Mail Theft

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Elite

I can communicate with most businesses in the real estate industry with no problems. Some title companies are very advanced in security as are most banks. This is the best way to Avoid E-Mail Theft. I only use my secured server email address, which is very difficult to intercept. Everything is safe until we get close to the closing. Most customers use gmail, yahoo, and other free email services. The moment I sent them closing statements for review, my email is flooded with all kinds of spam emails containing some of the worst viruses in the world. I get emails from all over the world. You have to know how to identify where the email was sent from. I know the local offices I work with do not have information sent from overseas. I have to know what is legitimate and what is spam, and what is a virus. These days I have to explain to people, bring the check to the closing. Do not send any money to anyone without first checking with me. Free email services may sound great, but they are public information and have to be treated as such. You have to be extra careful these days. Explaining Internet security and How to Avoid E-Mail Theft has become a part of the services Real Estate Agents should be discussing with their clients.

You made me laugh at two things that I can relate to Dennis Herman .  1. We have an Asian handyman who speaks broken English.  When I ask to do a task, he often comes back with "EZ1"!  2. Several years ago, in going to escrow for a closing, my buyer came in with 70,000 cash in a brown paper bag for the down payment and closing costs!  After an explanation to him, we went to a bank next door and converted it to a 'cashier's check'!

Thanks Bruce. We need to share stories like that. I've been after the state of Wisconsin to do something about all these scams and the NAR to jump in and help. Finally last week the published a warning. I post about some of the scams and one of the local WRA attornies sent me a warning. About what? Internet theft is a reality. Just because sone of the larger firms use it to increase business does not make it right. What will happen if us small guys get wiped out?
