Fraud Advisory for Local Businesses

Fri, 2016-09-23

The Bermuda Police Service wishes to advise businesses of an increase of attacks on Bermuda based businesses in a sophisticated scam known as the ‘Business Email Compromise’, which targets employees who perform regular wire transfers.

The scammers use tools to make the email appear that it was initiated by the executive (‘spoofed’) or registering a domain similar to the targeted email account. Upon success, the payment officer then receives an authentic looking email from the executive, authorising the immediate wire payment to be sent overseas, the majority to China and Hong Kong.
