‘Man in the Email’ Scam

CFO’s and CEO’s beware: The Nigerian Cyber Criminal is targeting you! They are spoofing company email addresses for business-to-business emails and sending out requests to transfer money to a scam account. We have been notified this has happened locally, and recently to CEO’s and Senior Level Executives at organizations, one instance causing a multi-million dollar loss.

The FBI is aware of a fraud victimizing state-based businesses, nicknamed “man-in-the-e-mail” scheme for being an e-mail variation of a known “man-in-the-middle” scam. The FBI wants the public to learn about this scam in order to avoid being victimized.
