Tips to Protect Your Information During Your Real Estate Transaction
Real Estate Transactions are a Prime Target for Fraudsters!
When you buy a home you will be required to submit personal information to your lender and/or escrow agent. At Cherry Creek Title Services, we go above and beyond the industry standards to secure your personal information during and after your transaction. Here are some important tips to remember:
Always carefully examine the email address from which you receive updates on your transaction from your escrow officer to ensure it is correct. If an email seems suspicious, contact your escrow officer immediately.
|Call your escrow officer immediately if you receive an email requesting to change the wiring instructions for your transactions. DO NOT use the contact information provided in the email.|
|Carefully review your personal information on your transaction paperwork to ensure it is correct.||Communicate or confirm any changes to the transaction with your escrow officer over the phone or in person.|
Do not provide information about yourself or your transaction to any unknown or unnecessary parties.
|Contact your escrow officer if you suspect your email address is being improperly used or if you do not receive funds in a timely fashion.|
