What is Email Wire Transfer Fraud?

Cybercriminals utilize email to impersonate legitimate individuals within your organization, such as CEOs, CFOs, or vendors. These emails often contain a sense of urgency, requesting a wire transfer to a fraudulent account. Criminals may use tactics like:

  • Spoofed Email Addresses: Email addresses may appear to originate from a trusted source, with only minor spelling or domain name variations.
  • Social Engineering: Scammers pressure recipients with urgency or threats of consequences for delayed action.
  • Fake Invoices: Fraudulent emails may include invoices with altered account information, directing funds to a scammer's account.
How to Prevent Email Wire Transfer Fraud:
  • Scrutinize Email Requests: Be wary of emails requesting urgent wire transfers, especially from unfamiliar senders.
  • Verify Sender Information: Double-check email addresses for any irregularities. If unsure, contact the sender directly through a trusted phone number.
  • Confirm Wire Transfer Instructions: Always confirm wire transfer instructions directly with the intended recipient, using established communication channels.
  • Educate Employees: Train staff to recognize the signs of email wire transfer fraud and instill a culture of verifying information before taking action.
  • Implement Strong Cybersecurity Practices: Utilize email filtering solutions and implement multi-factor authentication protocols to add an extra layer of security.
