FBI Agent to Speak About Real Estate Cyber Crimes

FBI-raid 1 Louisiana-law-enforcement-agenciesWire fraud is a growing problem for real estate professionals. A hacker gets into the email account of someone involved in a transaction, gathers enough information to create an accurate-sounding email that defrauds a buyer by emailing instructions to send funds to a fraudulent account.

We are pleased to welcome FBI Supervisory Special Agent Michael Sohn to Real Estate REvive Conference & Expo on March 30, 2017. Sohn, who currently leads a squad at the FBI Los Angeles Field Division responsible for investigating computer and high-technology crimes involving national security matters, will be “interrogated” by CRMLS CEO Art Carter.

Sohn’s investigative experience includes cyber terrorism as well as state-sponsored and criminal cyber intrusion matters.  Prior to the FBI, Sohn worked as a Cyber Counterintelligence Officer for the Department of the Army, a Counter Terrorism officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency, a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton and a U.S. Army Officer.
