Housing prices in the Metro Area are quite elevated, so most residents who would like to stop renting and purchase a house cannot afford to do so.  We were renting in the Metro Area for years, and my wife and I wanted to finally buy a house and start paying our own mortgage rather than someone else’s mortgage.

The email looks legitimate and often contains the transaction specific information the hackers obtained in the body of the email or as an attachment.
