Latest Real Estate Scam Hits E-Mail Accounts – Buyers Beware

As if the real estate market in South Florida doesn’t have enough going on with all of the new construction and tight inventory in high demand locations, there is now a new scam to watch out for. Hackers are using the hot real estate markets throughout the country and are targeting Realtors® and their client’s. They hack into a Realtor’s e-mail account, learn about transactions they are working on and then e-mail the client requesting a deposit be wired to an account. It all looks legitimate to the client, who wires the money to a fraudulent account.
To protect yourself:
• Always verify any request to transfer funds with your REALTOR® and closing agent, either a title company or attorney.
• Call using a number you have used before, NOT the number on the e-mail directing you to wire the deposit.
• Be on the lookout for responses to e-mails that you have not sent. This may be a sign that your e-mail account has been hacked.
• Be especially careful of e-mails from gmail and Hotmail accounts.
• Please share this information with any one you know who is currently buying or selling real estate

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very
    techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    With thanks

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more on this topic,
    it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t speak about these subjects.
    To the next! Best wishes!!

    After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?

    You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people should read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular given that you definitely have the
    gift.
