Home Buying Wire Fraud

Fraudsters are sitting on email servers, watching traffic and patiently waiting for the right opportunity to intercept and redirect wire information from and to unsuspecting home buyers and title companies wiring money as it relates to home purchases. All wire destination information received via email should be verbally confirmed with a known number to an individual home sellers and buyers have personally met to prevent being a victim of this scam.  This is particularly important if there are changes to the information originally communicated, but best practice for all wire instructions received electronically.
