A Word From Lucas

With over 20 years’ experience working in Title and Escrow closing a vast array of transactions, I consider myself a seasoned escrow veteran. My brokers and lenders consider me a knowledgeable resource they can trust to provide solutions to any situation that may arise.

I pride myself on catering to my client’s needs and efficiently meeting even the tightest deadline. My favorite part of closing is the people I get to engage with. I understand the importance of providing a positive and memorable closing experience for my customers. Whether it’s a first time buyer or a seasoned investor, everyone has a story.

When I am not at work I enjoy raising my three amazing kids and making memories.

We Remember and Honor Our Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day

Memorial Day provides us with an opportunity to reflect, remember, and honor the American soldiers who have died during active duty. Here are some ways to honor our fallen heroes:

Visit a Cemetery or Memorial

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries.

Pause at 3PM

A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

Flying the Flag at Half Staff

On Memorial Day, the flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until noon only, then raised briskly to the top of the staff until sunset, in honor of the nation’s battle heroes.

Wear a Flower of Remembrance

Following the events of WWI, The VFW adopted the poppy as its official memorial flower in 1922. Read the story here.

Provide Financial Support for Families of the Fallen

If you are inclined to give, the USO and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) provide financial and emotional support to bereaved spouses and children of troops who have died serving their country.

However you choose to observe Memorial Day, we would like to wish you good health and happiness in the company of loved ones.

True Story: Escrow Team Prevents Diverted Payoff Wires

diverted payoff wires

diverted payoff wires

On February 12, 2018, Larissa C., an escrow assistant for Ticor Title of Nevada in Las Vegas, opened an escrow transaction for the sale of a residential property for $240,000. Once the title report was received, Larissa ordered a payoff statement from the existing lienholder. The payoff was sent via e–fax and she placed it in the file awaiting closing.

On March 7, 2018, Larissa worked up the file and sent the estimated closing statement to the Listing Agent.

The Listing Agent then provided Larissa with an “updated” payoff statement by email with a number of demands for Larissa to confirm: that she received the new payoff statement and she would use that one in making the payoff.

It is not normal that an agent would order an updated payoff statement to be delivered to the settlement agent. Larissa was suspicious about the email exchange, so she forwarded the email chain to her escrow officer, Stacey G., to review.

Stacey and Larissa knew something was wrong. They compared the two payoff statements closely. These were the wire instructions contained in the body of each payoff statement:

ORIGINAL Payoff Statement: ALTERED Payoff Statement
Account #: XXXXXXX279
ABA/Routing Number: XXXXXXXXX
Bank Name: Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
Bank Address: 420 Montgomery Street
San Francisco, CA 94104

(the instructions included overnight delivery instructions for a cashier’s check)

Account #: XXXXXXX086
ABA/Routing Number: XXXXXXXXX
Wire Reference: USA/Birt/payoff
Beneficiary: Brit Equipment/payoff
Bank Name: Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
Bank Address: 1445 Ross Ave. Suite 100
Dallas, TX 75202

(the overnight delivery instructions were removed altogether)

Together they called the payoff lender and confirmed their suspicion: the second payoff was from a fraudster! They detected the scam. They immediately contacted the Listing Agent by telephone, using a known, trusted telephone number. They reported someone was posing as him in the transaction and sending emails from an account that looked like his.

They immediately contacted the Listing Agent by telephone, using a known, trusted telephone number.

Ultimately, they wired the funds to the correct account of the payoff lender and saved the Company from a possible loss of $153,300.37! As a result of their actions, the Company has rewarded Stacey and Larissa for their expertise in discovering the fraud and preventing it from occurring.
