Protect Yourself Against Wire Fraud

Email spoofing is being used in a scheme that targets financial institutions and their clients by initiating fraudulent wire transfers using a forged email address.  Here are a few helpful tips to protect yourself from this type of fraud:

  • Protect your email and bank account access by creating complex passwords that include a combination of mixed case letters, numbers and special characters.
  • Install firewall and virus protection and update them regularly.
  • Obtain verbal confirmation from your client before you initiate a wire transfer based on email instructions.
