Current Trend:  We continue to witness local companies falling prey to the “Wire Transfer” fraud scheme. 

Please be aware the FBI, Financial Services Information Sharing & Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) and U.S. Secret Service have issued an important fraud alert. Originally reported this past summer, U.S. Businesses continue to fall victim to an increasingly common scheme.  This scheme is a type of payment fraud, using legitimate business e-mail accounts for the purpose of conducting unauthorized wire transfers.  If you have been contacted to conduct a wire transfer, extra measures are advisable to insure this is a legitimate and authorized request.
How to Mitigate Your Risk

The FBI encourages incorporating the following measures to protect your company:

  • Verify any change in payment instructions to vendors or suppliers by calling or verbally confirming the request (do not verify validity via email).
  • Maintain a file (preferably in a non-electronic format) of vendor/supplier contact information and authorized contacts.
  • Limit the number of employees who have authority to approve wire transfers.
  • View the complete risk mitigation list here.

There are more details on this potential risk and what to do if you are impacted in the official FBI warning alert.
