Wire Fraud
Unfortunately, wire fraud is on the rise.  While our team at Fidelity National Title has implemented the highest level of security to ensure your protection, direct commuication is a critical step in preventing fraudulent interference.  ALWAYS CALL BEFORE YOU WIRE and never rely upon e-mail communication. Please note the following important steps to consider before completing your wire transfer and record your transaction contact information in your copy of the buyer & seller guide or in a safe place for your reference:
STEP 1: Obtain the phone number of your real estate broker, REALTOR® and your Fidelity National Title escrow officer as soon as an escrow is opened.
STEP 2: Call the phone number you wrote down from STEP 1 above to  speak directly with your Fidelity National Title escrow officer to confirm wire instructions PRIOR to wiring. If you receive alternative wiring instructions appearing to be from Fidelity National Title, be suspicious as we rarely change our wiring instructions. 
NOTE:  Changes to wire instructions will never be delivered via email. Please be sure to call us directly for confirmation of all instructions.
