In an effort to educate clients about the risk of wire fraud, a number of REALTOR® associations have developed wire fraud notices for use by their members. In addition to serving as an educational tool, the integration of such a notice in a real estate professional’s practice may serve as an effective risk management tool to protect real estate professionals from liability related to wire fraud. Here are several examples of wire fraud notices: 

Idaho Fraud Alert Notice 

Massachusetts Wire Fraud Advisory 

Washington Wire Fraud Alert
