A new scam to be aware of!

News → A new scam to be
If you have recently purchased a home or considering buying a home in Saskatoon,
please read this important information. There is a new scam happening once again in real
estate that you should be aware of. The plot is this: hackers
find out your possession date, email you posing as a representative of your
agent or lawyer, ask for money to complete your sale, then you wire transfer
them money to a ‘new, updated’ account number.
Now hopefully this won’t happen to you or if it does, you’ll be wise enough to
question the integrity of the baited email. Your law firm, your real estate brokerage and
your realtor will never email you and tell you there has been last minute
changes to the wiring instructions. If you chose to initially wire transfer the
deposit to your real estate brokerage at the time of offer, the instructions will not change. Ensure you’re getting the information
directly from your trusted real estate agent.
If you receive an email asking you to transfer money from someone that you
don’t know personally, there are things you can do to protect yourself before
sending over money:
-call your agent or lawyer and ask them why there’s been a change.
-independently confirm the wire transfer account information by calling the
-call the police and report the scam.
If anyone emails you and asks for money or your banking information,
BEWARE. It happens to more people than you think. Don’t let it happen to you!
