Cybercrime and electronic transfer/wire fraud is prevalent these days and we are all taking the necessary steps to help protect personal, non-public information through secure and encrypted email practices. Despite these efforts, new scams continue to arise and our consistent attention is essential.
With the prevalence of Cyber Theft please be advised that Meridian Title Corporation (MTC) will not accept wiring instructions that are sent via unsecured email. Wire Instructions must be completed and signed on the Authorization to Wire MTC Form. Any changes to the wire instructions during the closing process will necessitate a phone call to a reliable number and written and signed confirmation to confirm the change. MTC apologizes for any inconvenience; however, MTC is committed to providing security and protection to our customers.
