In the report, Khan comments, “The greatest cyber threat in the title sector today is cybercriminals’ use of social networking tools and public data to lure participants in the real estate transaction, posing as another participant (title agent, settlement agent, Realtor, buyer, seller, lawyer or lender), into sending down payment funds to the criminal’s bank account, the FBI reports that millions of dollars have been stolen in the midst of real estate and other transactions with this tactic the tech industry calls ‘Whaling’ and the FBI calls ‘Business Email Compromise.’” Download the report.
