Wire Fraud Preventionimg

Wire Fraud Prevention

It is an unfortunate and sometimes tragic reality that real estate buyers are often the target of wire fraud. REALTORS®, 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. After monitoring the account to determine the likely timing of a close, the hacker will send an email to the buyer, posing either as the escrow agent or as the licensee. The fraudulent email will contain new wiring instructions or routing information, and will request that the buyer send funds accordingly. 

Fidelity National Title is urging our clients to ALWAYS CALL BEFORE YOU WIRE and never rely upon email communication. Always follow these two simple steps:

Preparing for Your Closingimg

Preparing for Your Closing

As your closing date approaches, we want to make sure you feel prepaerd and know what to expect. Your team is behind the scenes working to ensure that all details are handled but we find that many of our clients like to know what is just ahead.  

The following steps are generally what you can expect for your purchase or refinance:
The lender will deliver the "Closing Disclosure" for your review three days prior to signing (depending on the delivery method). CLICK HERE for our interactive calendar to view all possible signing date scenarios.

Your escrow team will contact you to schedule your signing. Meanwhile, the lender will deliver all loan documents to the escrow team and then....It is time to sign.

Download our helpful tips to >PREPARE FOR YOUR SIGNING< to ensure that you have all you need to be ready. The signing may take place at one of our offices or we may schedule a notary to meet you. All signing details will be coordinated by your escrow team. Please be sure to take note of any current COVID precautions that will be delivered by the coordinating escrow officer and please be sure to confirm the address of the signing location with your EO. Google is great, but has been known to occasionally be mistaken.
