Texas Home Sales Fraud
We are constantly keeping up with trends in Texas home sales fraud prevention through our network or experts and real estate professionals which is why you can always trust Sell My House Fast as your partner in home sales.
If you think about it, a house is the most expensive item that a person buys over his/her lifetime. Big money, big opportunities. However, on the same token criminals prey on the weak and use creative ways to make a lot of money by scamming victims whether they’re buyers or sellers.
We invited some real-estate fraud experts to share some tips on how to prevent being scammed.
Eliminate e-mail as a correspondence conduit—at least as far as information on closings and other sensitive information.
On the other hand, you may value having “everything in writing,” and e-mail provides a permanent record.
Use encrypted email programs as much as possible
For money-wiring, request a phone call and make this request over the phone so that the hacker doesn’t try to pose as your Realtor over the phone
Any e-mailed money instructions should be confirmed by phone.
Get verification of the transfer ASAP.
If you suspect a Texas home sale scam, have the receiving bank freeze any withdrawal attempt of the newly deposited funds.
