Real Estate Professionals®, Real Estate Brokers, Buyers and Sellers are targets for wire fraud and many have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars because they simply relied on the wire instructions received via email.

A hacker will break into a licensee’s email account to obtain information about upcoming real estate transactions.

The fraudulent email will contain new wiring instructions or routing information, and will request that the Buyer send funds accordingly.
