Don’t Fall Victim To Cyber Criminals


Wire fraud and email/phishing attacks are on the rise! If you have an escrow or closing transaction with us and you receive an email containing NEW or REVISED wiring instructions, DO NOT respond to the email.  Instead, call your closing team immediately, using a previously provided phone number or email address, to verify instructions prior to sending funds. DO NOT use any contact information provided in the suspected phishing email!

SELLERS:  Bring your banking information to the closing table.  We will give you a wiring instructions form for your completion and your original signature.  We will only wire your sales proceeds based on those completed instructions.

OUT OF TOWN SELLERS:  Include your original signed wiring instructions form along with the fully executed closing documents when you return your closing package to us.

BUYERS:  Once requested by you, we will send our wiring instructions directly to you in secure email communication noted by [rtt-secure] in the subject line.  THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL NEVER CHANGE.  Before you initiate your purchase money wire, please call your Republic Title of Texas, Inc. closing team to verify the wiring instructions.  Just a reminder, a cashier’s check may be the safer option.

If you are ever in doubt about an email or wiring instructions, please call your closing team at Republic of Texas, Inc.  You can find a list of all of  our offices under locations on our website.
