Those who act in a fiduciary capacity handling funds of others have the direct responsibility to take all steps necessary to insure that their escrow accounts are properly managed and protected from criminal or negligent activity.

The vast majority of those who handle escrow funds are honest and perform their duties with the highestdegree of integrity. Unfortunately, in the past 30 years, I have been witness to a small, but significant number of cases where honest title agents and lawyers find their escrow accoun 'out of balance'. Some made innocent mistakes about timing of deposits while others failed to adequately supervise those who are working under them. Regardless of the reason, the impact of a 'bounced' escrow check was devastating to their reputation, their clients and in some cases their livelihood. TLTA can help!

This training session will acquaint you with several ways that escrow checks can 'bounce' even if you never ‘steal’ a penny and ways to avoid losses due to bank failure.

In this session, we will cover:
• Common types of internal and external fraud and ways to prevent it from happening
• Common ways third parties can gain illegal access to your escrow accounts
• Banking laws that can result in overdraft notices just through timing of deposits
• Ways to insure you can evaluate your bank’s chances of being closed by FDIC
• When is the $250,000 FDIC insurance inadequate?
• How to insure that all client funds are fully FDIC Insured in the event of a failure
• Do you have an ethical responsibility if your Bank fails and your clients money is lost
• Is picking a bank from the Bar ‘approved list’ of banks enough protection?
• And much more
