Keeping your Transactions Safe in 2023
Did you know that 1 in 3 real estate transactions are targeted for wire fraud? Cybercriminals are stealing millions of dollars per month from title companies and consumers. Wire fraud can strike at any time, and its impact extends beyond that of the victim that was scammed.
The safety and security of your closing transaction is our number one priority here at Bankers Title & Bankers Closing Services. To keep your transaction safe, we are taking enhanced, diligent steps to ensure that your closing is secure.
