 Internet fraud and our security

 

 

 

Internet fraud comes in various forms. During a Real Estate transaction, we always advise clients to call the title/escrow company before wiring funds on a new purchase. Hackers are looking for ways to intercept emails between the title and escrow companies, realtors, and their clients. The article below states California is one of the top states that has been affected by this type of fraud. To learn more, there is a link to the FBI report at the bottom of the article.
