Hello all- I wanted to give you a quick heads up on yet another trend in phishing. We received this email at ID Experts late last week but I have since learned that a number of people have received similar emails across the country. Their nefarious M.O. is to send an email to the person most likely to be in a position to send wire transfers from inside the company or organization. They send the email and make it look like it is coming from their boss. In my case, my name and correct email address appeared in the “From” header on the email and it was sent to our controller:
Hope you are having a splendid day. I want you to quickly email me the details you will need to help me process an outgoing wire transfer to another bank. I will appreciate a swift email response….
