Business Email Compromise

Sometimes fraudsters impersonate people you know at work and ask you to redirect funds/payments to an account under their control.


  • Is the sender asking you to transfer money to a different account?
  • Is the email ID 100% matching with the email ID of your friend/business partner?


  • Is it possible for someone to send you email on behalf of your business partner/friend?
  • How can you verify that the email asking you to send money to a different account has been sent by the genuine person?


  • Always call only on your client’s known phone numbers for verification and not on the numbers mentioned in an email.
  • Have an updated Anti-Virus software on your computers to blockmalware/viruses/key loggers.
  • If you suspect that your personal details have been compromised, report it immediately to your bank
