Business email compromise (BEC) scams

Business email compromise (BEC) scams are a type of phishing scam where scammers use hacked or spoofed email accounts to pretend to be business partners, suppliers, or employees when asking their victims to transfer funds to a new bank account. To protect your business from such scams, you can check your accounts first before clicking on a link. If you receive an unusual text or email claiming to be from a trusted business, do not click on the link in the message. Never call back an unknown number. Don’t pay a stranger with a gift card. Don’t give remote access to someone who contacts you unexpectedly.
