Business Email Compromise (BEC) scams target businesses. In this fraud, a criminal hacks into a corporate email system and deceives the employees into completing unauthorized fund transfers.

How it Works

CEO Fraud

The fraudster pretends to be a trusted source; like a high-level executive (CFO, CEO, CTO, etc.), either by mimicking their email address or by hacking their actual account. The fake executive claims to be handling a pressing confidential matter and requests an urgent wire transfer to an account under their control.

Account Hacking 

The fraudster hacks an employee’s email account and uses it to request invoice payments to an account they control.

Fake Invoice

The fraudster sends a business a faked email that looks like it’s from one of their trusted suppliers requesting payment for an attached invoice. The invoice contains altered payment details, such as phone or facsimile number, so the funds are sent to an account the criminal controls.

How to Protect Yourself

  • Be cautious of any unsolicited, urgent emails requesting immediate attention (it has to be done today).
  • Before sending any money, confirm the request is legitimate. Contact the OCNI office directly.
  • Watch for grammar and spelling errors.
  • Avoid clicking any links or attachments. They may contain viruses or spyware.
