Following up on our recent Coffee Corner discussing Cyber Fraud, here’s a short video by Margy Grant on the subject of Wire Fraud.
Wire fraud cases are on the rise; and buyers are being bilked out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Criminals use sophisticated software to hack email accounts and look for keywords that indicate a transaction is in progress. Florida Realtors has added a Wire Fraud Prevention notice to the forms library to assist agents in working with buyers to help them understand the danger of fraudulent wiring instructions.

Thank you Florida Realtors.
