PSA: Business E-Mail Compromise ScamsOn September 7, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
[Phone ringing in the background] Did you make that transfer to Hong Kong for
the Emerson Project? I was just about to. But did you see the boss’s e-mail? It doesn’t look right. It looked fine to me. I don’t remember him mentioning the
Emerson Project at our last meeting… The bank in Hong Kong closes in 15 minutes. Make the transfer! Yes, sir. Money’s on the way. Mr. Jacobs, just transferred money for the Emerson project. What Emerson project? Don’t be that guy. Trust but verify.
