trends-at-a-glance-sep-2016Scammers Posing as Your Real Estate Agent

Wanted to share with you this great article from Money Magazine.

There’s a scam afoot, or, shall we say, a-wire that prospective homebuyers may want to be on the lookout for, and it happens like this: You’re nosing around the real estate market — maybe even close to buying a house or piece of property. And then you get a message from your real estate agent urging you to wire money to secure the deal.

As you might have guessed, a scammer is spoofing your real estate agent’s account and is waiting for your money.

How a Scammer Finds Their Target

Hackers snatch passwords when people log into free Wi-Fi networks or click on things like those cute-puppy emails. They search your inbox or your real estate agent’s inbox for any messages related to real estate transactions. Once they find you’re in the process of buying a home, they’ll send a fake message from your agent or attorney, title representative (or other trusted source), alerting you to new money wiring instructions to a fraudulent account. Once your money is wired, it’s likely gone for good.
