This issue continues to come up. If you are a buyer’s agent and your client is wiring money to the title company, please have them directly call the title company to verify the wiring instructions. Don’t allow them to rely on an email alone. There has been an increase in hacked emails which has lead people to wire money to scammers. Please be careful and advise your clients accordingly!
