KnowBe4 Scam of the Week: Email Impersonation Attacks on the Rise
Stay alert! The bad guys are now using CEO fraud and Business Email Compromise attacks more than ever.
These attacks take place when the bad guys impersonate executives within your organization via email and ask you to transfer them a large sum of money. They’re trying to manipulate you – don’t fall for it!
Instead, make sure that any request for a money transfer comes from the right person! Grab the phone and give them a call to verify that the request is legitimate. Better yet, communicate with them face-to-face about the request. They’ll thank you later!
Let’s stay safe out there!
Stop, Look, and Think. Don’t be fooled.
