Buying a new home should be an exciting and unforgettable milestone for U.S. homebuyers. However, for more than 11,000 victims of real estate wire transfer fraud in the United States in 2018, it was a nightmare. Many lost their entire savings, as well as the new home they were trying to buy. Most never recovered a penny. The large down payments they mistakenly wired to a criminal's account were transferred overseas and never seen again.

Join MBA Education & Bruce Phillips, SVP & Chief Information Security at WFG National Title Insurance Company, for this informative webinar to highlight the current status of wire transfer fraud for consumers and businesses inside the real estate industry and discuss how mortgage lenders and all actors in the mortgage origination chain can help to prevent wire transfer fraud from taking place prior to closings.
