These pages may contain links to other Web sites, including sites of third parties who have a relationship with HOUSE AMERICA.

YOUR SECURITY IS IMPORTANT TO US

An increasingly common scam—called "phishing"—uses official-looking emails to deceive consumers into disclosing their personal information. The email often directs the recipient to a "look-alike" Web site of a legitimate business, tricking consumers into thinking they are responding to a valid request. To avoid getting caught in any of these scams, please remember to:
 Keep your password secret and change it periodically.
 Never give out your vital account information by email or telephone, unless you initiated the contact. HOUSE AMERICA never sends emails asking for personal information.
 Whenever you wish to register at houseamericarealestate.com, edit or add new information to your account, or set up a new HOUSE AMERICA account, please make sure the URL address is as follows:
 http://www.houseamericarealestate.com. You may want to add this URL to your browser's Favorites or Bookmarks menu.
 Always end your secure session on the Internet completely by clicking the “Log Out” link and by closing your browser's window before you leave the computer.
