Anyone involved in Real Estate right now knows there has been a newer disclosure about Wire Fraud. We've had it for a few years already.
We Realtors also know that our clients don't always read everything we send them to review so it's our job to make sure they know what's going on.
That includes Wire Fraud. I can't imagine any of my clients actually clicking on a link in an e-mail and sending money. BUT, it has happened to others apparently.
DOJ just arrested 8 more people in a 15M scam. Not only Real Estate related....all kinds of other computer/wire/money fraud items.
Their task force is called Operation Keyboard Warrior. It's horrible that we have to have this task force, but glad we do.
Purpose of this blog post is a REMINDER to never, ever click on a link and send money. Sheesh, don't click on any damn links unless you know for sure it's a valid one!!
Better safe than sorry!
