Protect Yourself Against Online Fraud

Fraud in the Title industry

As a valued member of our real estate community, we at SETCO Services want to ensure that you are aware of a growing concern that can have a significant impact on your financial investment—title insurance fraud. Recent statistics have shown an alarming increase in fraudulent activities targeting unsuspecting buyers and sellers in the state of Florida.

At SETCO Services, we believe that knowledge is power, which is why we are reaching out to you today. We want to educate and empower you to protect yourself against such fraudulent schemes that can jeopardize your real estate transactions. It’s crucial to remain vigilant throughout the process and take steps to safeguard your funds and personal information.


Consider the following eye-opening statistics about title insurance fraud in Florida:

  1. According to a recent report, Florida ranks among the highest states for reported cases of title insurance fraud, affecting thousands of individuals each year.
  2. Wire fraud, where cyber-criminals intercept and reroute funds during real estate transactions, is one of the most prevalent forms of title insurance fraud.
  3. In the past year alone, Florida residents have lost millions of dollars due to fraudulent wire transfers.
You might be wondering, “How can I protect myself from falling victim to title insurance fraud?” The answer lies in proactive communication and verification of wire instructions. Always take the extra step to confirm wire instructions directly with your closer at the title company. By establishing this vital line of communication, you can significantly reduce the risk of fraudulent activity.
