Title Tip of the Week

Cases of wire fraud are becoming more prevalent in the DMV. Did you know that Virginia ranks 6th in the country for this type of real estate cybercrime?

In order to prevent wire fraud from occurring, always call your title company to verify wire instructions before initiating a wire.

In addition to this, never call the number that is listed in an email. Always make sure to use the number listed on the title companies website to ensure you are wiring the funds to the correct place.
