Tips for preventing wire fraud


When sending a personal wire:

  • Never wire money to claim a prize, pay a surprise bill or fine you weren’t aware of, or to someone you don’t know.
  • Beware of situations where someone is going to send you money and then have you wire it someone else.
  • Make sure that the payee of the wire makes sense for the reason it’s being sent. For example, if sending a wire for a business purpose, it should not be sent to the account of an individual.
  • Remember that sending a wire is like sending cash and can be very difficult to recover once the funds are gone.
  • Title companies and real estate transactions can be high targets for wire fraud, verify any change in wire instructions directly with your title company.
  • Beware of situations where someone is asking you to wire “emergency” funds or other high-pressure requests.

When sending a business wire:

  • Establish a process for the request and approval of wires that includes a verbal verification of the request. Do not process wires based solely on an email request.
  • Make sure that the payee of the wire makes sense for the type of request you’re fulfilling. For example, if sending a wire to another business, it should not be sent to the account of an individual.
  • Remember that sending a wire is like sending cash and can be very difficult to recover once the funds are gone.
  • Title companies and real estate transactions can be high targets for wire fraud, verify any change in wire instructions directly with your title company.
  • Beware of situations where someone is asking you to wire “emergency” funds or other high-pressure requests.
