Munizzi Law Firm’s Latest Upgrade Promotes Enhanced Security and Wire Fraud Prevention

Buying or selling real estate is more than just a transaction; it's a leap of faith in many ways.

January 19, 2024

Buying or selling real estate is more than just a transaction; it's a leap of faith in many ways. You are entrusting not just your financial future, but oftentimes your business plans and personal dreams into the hands of your chosen title agency. In 2022 alone, the real estate industry suffered a staggering 396M+ in adjusted losses in 2022 as a result of business email compromise (BEC) scams. Furthermore, in a recent American Land Title Association (ALTA) survey, title professionals reported cybercriminals attempted to trick employees to wire funds to a fraudulent account in a third of all transactions. That is something we should all be concerned about.

At Munizzi Law Firm, we understand the gravity of the situation, and that's why we take security and wire fraud prevention seriously. But, security isn't just a lofty promise; it's a tangible reality we deliver through cutting-edge technology and unparalleled human expertise.
