Bulletin 18/19 - 7 | August 7, 2018

CLTA, in conjunction with CEA, is pleased to offer: Fraud in the Real Estate Industry-My How It Has Changed, a 1.0-hour live webinar delivered to your desktop on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 11:00am - 12:00pm PST. Participants requesting MCLE or PD will receive 1.0 CE credit for participating in the webinar.

Remember When:

  • Mortgage Fraud was the biggest crime we had to defend against?
  • Sellers drawing against their line of credit the day before closing was one of our biggest losses?
  • Counterfeit “official checks” being deposited into escrow were one of the biggest scams being perpetrated against our industry?

Now the FBI reports Business E-mail Compromise (BEC) scams targeting the real estate industry are on the rise 1100%. That’s not a typo, from calendar year 2015 to 2017, there was over an 1100% rise in the number of BEC scams reported to the FBI regarding real estate transactions and an almost 2200% rise in the reported monetary loss. I would much rather fight mortgage fraud!

In this session we will discuss:

  • Real property theft by imposters
  • Using other people's properties as collateral for hard money loans
  • Diverted wire transfers
