Beware of Phishing Expeditions

Please be aware that phishing campaigns and deepfake images/videos aren’t intended only for consumers. They target businesses, too, and the commercial real estate industry is not immune. Connect CRE has learned of a rise in fraud cases where criminals are using old corporate logos and materials of legitimate companies and using them to convince unsuspecting borrowers to submit personal data. 

With the technology to produce fraudulent emailings and videos growing increasingly sophisticated—and widespread—please be sure to confirm the legitimacy of those with whom you intend to do business. If you suspect suspicious activity, contact the appropriate federal authority.
