(jp) = Vickie Ragle, a retired teacher in Colorado, and her daughter lost almost $200,000 in a townhouse sale scam. The pair signed documents and were excited about the purchase, but an employee at the title company realised the fraud during a funds check. Ragle received an email from a “hacker” posing as the title company and insisting on swift payment. The scam is called business email compromise, and the Colorado Bureau of Investigations recommends not changing bank accounts based on phone or email requests. A GoFundMe campaign to help Ragle and her daughter has so far raised two-thirds of its $200,000 target.
