Phishing, hacking, wire
fraud- these are all ways
people attempt to steal
from others online. As real estate
searches and transactions move
more and more online, the chances
of being caught up in a cyber scam
have become even greater.
By now most people have heard
of the Nigerian prince scams or
phishing emails asking for social
security or banking information,
but many people don’t know that
they need to watch out for possible
scams when buying or selling their
home. Cybercrimes have become
increasingly sophisticated over the
years and the people perpetrating
them focus on situations where a lot
of money is changing hands, making
real estate transactions an ideal
target.

How to Avoid
Real Estate
CybER Scams

Realtors® recently warned
its members and consumers
about one example, a wiring
scam during the closing
stage of the home buying and
selling process. Hackers will
break into the email accounts
of consumers and real estate
professionals to get details about a
real estate transaction. The hacker
will then send an email pretending
to be the buyer, seller, real estate
agent or someone else involved in
the closing process and say there
has been a last minute change and
provide new wiring instructions; the
instructions send the closing costs
funds directly into the hacker’s bank
account.
While it may seem like there are
hundreds of ways for a criminal
to take advantage of a consumer
online, there are just as many ways
consumers can protect themselves.
Here are a few tips from the BryanCollege Station Regional Association
of REALTORS® to help home
buyers and sellers recognize and

avoid real estate scams:
Do not senD sensitive
information via email. Do not
send banking information, your
social security number or anything
else that could be used to comprise
your identity over email. If you
absolutely must send personal or
sensitive information via email, only
use encrypted email.
Do not click on unverifieD
email. If you do not recognize the
name or email address of the sender,
do not open the email. And beware
of any attachments or downloadable
files from unknown email addresses;
they can contain viruses or provide
a way for a hacker to access your
computer.
Do not use unsecureD Wi-fi.
It may seem harmless to check
banking information using the
free Wi-Fi at your local coffee shop,
but using an open connection can
leave you vulnerable to hackers and
scammers. Only access sensitive
information on your home computer
or on a secured network.

If you suspect fraud, tell someone.
If you suspect that fraud has or is in
the process of occurring, contact all
parties connected to the transaction
immediately. These cases are often
time-sensitive, so the sooner the
better. Unfortunately, often there
is nothing that can be done to
retrieve money stolen in the scam,
however, you should still report the
incident to the FBI’s Internet Crime
Complaint Center (https://www.
ic3.gov/default.aspx) or the Federal
Trade Commission (https://www.
ftccomplaintassistant.gov/?utm_
source=takeaction).
