Wire Fraud, Explained.
What do you know about wire fraud? Believe it or not, many buyers don't know the consequences of this costly scam. In the world of real estate, wire fraud involves someone posing as an agent and requesting large amounts of money via a wire transfer, which is often how buyers pay for their home at closing.
Although wire transfers are secure, hackers often prey on buyers by posing as trusted people, such as attorneys or agents. Luckily, there are steps you can take to protect yourself and your savings—and it's not as hard as you might think.
