This is a great article from Pam Zekman of CBS Chicago. I have not heard of it happening yet in Arizona, but we should never be too cautious. In Arizona the title company/escrow officer will typically include wiring instructions with the loan package, but I’ve also seen them email these instructions. If they are emailed, be sure to verify them with the escrow officer before you send the wire. Read more about this and feel free to contact me with any questions.
