Electronic communications, including, but not limited to, email, text messages, and those accessed through social media platforms, are neither secure, nor confidential. While Ward Kellner Properties, Inc. has adopted policies and procedures to aid in fraud avoidance and prevention, security protections can be bypassed by unauthorized parties. A Ward Kellner Properties, Inc. broker or agent will never send you any electronic communication with instructions to transfer funds or to provide nonpublic personal information, such as credit card or debit numbers, bank account and/or routing numbers, or other personal financial information.
DO NOT TRANSMIT NONPUBLIC PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION, SUCH AS CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD NUMBERS OR BANK ACCOUNT OR ROUTING NUMBERS, BY ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION THAT ATTEMPTS TO INDUCE FRAUDULENT WIRE TRANSFERS ARE COMMON AND MAY APPEAR TO COME FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE.
If you receive any electronic communication directing you to transfer funds or provide nonpublic personal and financial information, EVEN IF THAT ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION APPEARS TO BE FROM YOUR REAL ESTATE BROKER OR AGENT, do not respond and immediately contact your real estate agent by telephone or another means. DO NOT RESPOND TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION DISPLAYED IN THE COMMUNICATION YOU RECEIVED. Such requests, even if they may otherwise appear to be from your real estate agent or another person connected with your property transaction, are likely part of a scheme to defraud you by theft of funds or identity theft.
