FCT Fraud protection – We’ve got you covered
Jul 10th, 2020 | By FCT
Fraud is everywhere. No industry is safe from fraudsters. They are persistent and unfortunately, very creative.
The real estate industry is just as vulnerable to fraudsters as any other is. Luckily, FCT has you covered.
Along with our various products such as Errors and Omissions, Home Protection Solutions and Title Insurance, FCT is the only title insurer in Canada to have a Certified Fraud Examiner—a highly trained specialist that can spot the red flags and suspicious activity that most would overlook. This means fraudsters know better than to mess with FCT, and that our customers can rest assured they are safe when it comes to protecting themselves and their clients against the consequences of real estate fraud.
Marie Taylor is a Certified Fraud Examiner of the South Western Ontario Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. This organization is the world’s largest anti-fraud organization and the premier provider of anti-fraud training and education.
A sought-after subject matter expert specializing in residential title insurance, Marie Taylor is customer-focused, eager and willing to share her knowledge with our customers so that they too can more readily spot red flags and suspicious indicators in real estate transactions in order to detect and prevent fraud.
Arm yourself with help from FCT
With Marie’s vigilance and our title insurance policies, you can protect yourself against loss associated with title fraud and forgery. This can happen when the ownership or title of a property is illegally changed or documents are forged to allow a fraudster to sell or refinance the property.
It is impossible to prevent fraud from occurring but you can take measures to protect yourself and your clients by maintaining your vigilance—and with a title insurance policy from FCT.
