Welcome to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate’s (“Alliance Real Estate”) Anti-Fraud Disclosure. Electronic communications such as email, text messages and social media messaging, are neither secure nor confidential. While Alliance Real Estate has adopted policies and procedures to aid in avoiding fraud, even the best security protections can still be bypassed by unauthorized parties. No one at BHHS will ever send you any electronic communication with instructions to transfer funds or to provide nonpublic personal information, such as bank account or routing numbers, or credit card or debit card numbers.
You should never transmit nonpublic personal information, such as credit or debit card numbers or bank account or routing numbers, by email or other unsecured electronica communications. Emails attempting to induce fraudulent wire transfers are common and may appear to come from a trusted source.
If you received any electronic communication directing you to transfer funds or provide nonpublic personal information, even if that electronic communication appears to be from Alliance Real Estate or its affiliates, do not respond to it and immediately contact Alliance Real Estate. Do not take any action without first verifying the instructions with Alliance Real Estate. Such requests, even if they may otherwise appear to be from Alliance Real Estate, are likely part of a scheme to defraud you by stealing funds from you or using your identity to commit a crime. To notify Alliance Real Estate of suspected fraud related to your real estate transaction, contact us.
