First American Title Insurance Company Enhances Wire Verification Service for Title Agents

First American Title Insurance Company, a leading provider of title insurance and settlement services, has announced an important enhancement to its underwriting services. The company has partnered with PCN Network’s SAFEvalidation® service to offer a comprehensive wire verification service to its policy-issuing title agents. This service, designed exclusively for title agents, will now be included with First American Title’s underwriting services at no additional charge for First American insured transactions.

Wire fraud has become a significant threat in real estate transactions, and its prevalence continues to grow. To combat this issue, title agents require advanced tools to protect buyers, sellers, and other participants in the transaction process. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, adjusted losses from business email compromise complaints exceeded $2.7 billion in 2022, highlighting the urgency to address wire fraud.

Stephen Vincini, Agency Division President of First American Title Insurance Company, emphasized the company’s commitment to empowering title agents with cutting-edge tools that ensure a seamless and secure transaction process. By providing the comprehensive wire verification service at no additional cost, First American aims to protect consumers and enhance the security of real estate transactions.

The SAFEvalidation service, accessible through a secure portal, offers payee wire and bank account information authentication using proprietary payoff authentication technology. To further strengthen the service, PCN Network provides up to $1 million insurance protection per transaction that SAFEvalidation authenticates, backed by a third-party insurance provider.
