CEO fraud emails attacking Australian businesses

by Charina Warne (Sydney Office) | Jul 05, 2016
Please be careful if you receive emails requesting money to be transferred.

Scammers will even go as far as creating a fake email address with your CEO's name.

CERT Australia provides the following advice:

  • Do not reply to the email. 
  • Consider adding a second method of verification for large financial transfers, such as verbal verification between employees.
  • Alert employees to be vigilant with regard to these incidents, especially those conducting or authorising wire transfers or similar financial instruments.
If your company has been defrauded as a consequence of these emails, report the matter to local police for investigation and escalation as appropriate.
