Wire Fraud is Close to Home

Wire Fraud can affect all of us, and we want to make sure you don't become a victim.  It essentially boils down to one simple thing - if you receive a request to 'wire money' to anyone, pause and make sure to verify the source.  What is happening, is the wire fraud scammers are creating emails that fully replicate those that might otherwise look familiar to you, for instance, from us, your attorney, or lender.  They will send you a personal email requesting that you "wire funds for your closing", or other, only to be ultimately routed to a bogus account.  This has actually happened recently to a buyer and the representing real estate firm, in the region.  So, be aware, be vigilant, and if you ever receive any correspondence that appears to come from us or your attorney, please contact us immediately.  One of the ways you can flesh out this illegal procedure, is by looking at the actual email address in the email header.  In other words, if it looked like the email was coming from us - The Smith Macdonald Group - look to the right of that to see the actual address in parenthesis.  If it's a scam, the email address will not be a familiar one.  This rule of thumb can be applied to other potential junk mail or email scams, from the likes of Pay Pal, Amazon, etc., asking you to 'verify your account information', for instance.   Another tip is to not generate any sensitive information via email, including attaching instructions for wiring money into any of your or others accounts.  This information can be scraped, and used illegally.  Also make sure you have the proper Malwear protection on your computer to help identify cyber threats.
