ATG’s System for Protecting Your Clients from Wire Fraud

Effective October 1, 2021, for Transactions Closing in Champaign Office

Deb Feinen photoWire fraud schemes targeting real estate transactions continue to increase in frequency and scope. Fraudsters attempt to divert sellers' proceeds and buyers' incoming funds by intercepting emails, changing the content of the email and the wire instructions in the email attachments, and redirecting funds. Consumers have lost hundreds of millions of dollars. We won't let it happen to your clients.

To eliminate this threat, we partnered with CertifID, an industry leader in wire fraud prevention. Starting October 1, 2021, closings conducted through our Champaign office will include the CertifID process.

As always, we appreciate your business and value your feedback. Feel free to Contact Us with questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
