The scammers are out in full force! Please, be sure to advise your clients to NEVER wire funds without speaking to you or their attorney FIRST! One two occasions, buyers received instruction to wire funds from their trusted attorney. The scammer had changed the attorney’s email address by one letter, and thankfully, both were caught before the monies were irretrievable.
It’s a great policy to inform your buyers to NEVER wire funds without verbal confirmation, and to include a disclaimer on all correspondence reiterating this policy. We encourage you to consult with your legal counsel for the best wording on your disclaimer(s).
