To buy or sell a home, it takes a team of people surrounding our customers to protect their best interests. Realtors, loan officers and title companies are all on the same team.
That’s why we can’t talk about wire fraud too much. It is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month after all! Recently, we shared some simple tips on how to stay vigilant in your defense against cybercriminals, such as updating your passwords frequently and implementing protocols and guidelines for your teams.
The Continental Title team recognizes the important role that we play in protecting and clients from these crimes as well. From Day One, our mission has been to ensure the safety and security of every Realtor, buyer and seller we work with.
That’s why we partner with CertifID.
CertifID is a convenient, intuitive solution for authenticating all parties in a transaction and securely transferring wiring information. Buyers follow a simple three-step process, including:
1. Receiving an email or text invite from CertifID
2. Following the directions to validate device and identity
3. Reviewing and confirming wiring information, then transferring with trust.
This removes the unnecessary risk of sending and receiving wiring instructions through unsecure email. Plus, every transaction is protected by CertifID’s guarantee up to $1,000,000.
Unfortunately, we know that every wire transfer your buyers and sellers send is at risk. Data thieves are always on the lookout for opportunities to strike! Thankfully, our team is just as committed as you are to keeping your customers safe. When you close with Continental Title, wire fraud stops here.
