ClosingLock is the industry's foremost solution designed to shield title companies and their valued customers from a range of cyber threats, including social engineering, email spoofing, clone phishing, email hacking, imposter fraud, and compromised accounts.
Wire fraud remains a significant concern in real estate transactions, with cybercriminals continually seeking opportunities to steal funds by hacking emails, impersonating title companies, and spoofing real estate agents. In 2021 alone, over $350 million was pilfered from 13,638 real estate fraud victims. ClosingLock addresses these threats by providing encrypted access to download wire instructions, upload bank information, share documents, eSign paperwork, and complete identity verification.
“Keeping our clients protected is our highest priority here at Capital Title,” shared Tom Lico, President of Capital Title Insurance Agency. “Adding this heightened security empowers us to process each closing transaction with the utmost confidence, ensuring that all parties involved have the authority to sign, and that funds are delivered as intended.”
