Devastatingly effective wire fraud scams are becoming more and more common in real estate transactions. Sophisticated hackers are monitoring client and/or broker email accounts and waiting for a window to steal monies from your clients. The scammers convincingly impersonate the broker or escrow agent, and then send messages urging the clients to wire funds to fake accounts set up by the scammers. The clients are left with no recourse to recover the stolen funds. Are you prepared to protect yourself and your clients?
Washington REALTORS® in cooperation with the NWMLS, the Department of Licensing, Department of Financial Institutions and the Office of the Insurance Commissioner have created several resources to educate our members and consumers about this widespread but preventable fraud scheme, including Consumer Fraud Alert materials that can be used with clients, links to other resources and several explanatory videos.
