Fraud / Security advisory: Wire Transfer Request

Fraud / Security advisory: Wire Transfer Request

2 finance departments in our customer base have received emails in recent days purporting to be from the company’s Managing Director requesting a wire transfer to be made. These fraud attempts have demonstrated a knowledge of the company targeted and obvious research has gone into identifying the names and email address of the Managing Director and Finance Officer concerned. The format of the email was also credible at first glance.

 

Both attempts resulted in queries of a procedural nature that flagged the issue and upon investigation the emails originated not from the clients email system but a server in the Netherlands.

We would recommend you alert your finance team to this issue.
