Beware of CEO Fraud

Unfortunately, this type of business fraud is becoming increasingly popular.  Fraudsters are getting more sophisticated by sending emails to specific HR and Accounting staff employees that appear to come from the boss and even have a nearly identical email address.  These employees think they are responding to a request from their boss, but are actually handing over employee personal information or in many cases making wire transfers of large sums of money.

If you get what seems like a strange request from your boss, make sure you verify that it is legitimate before replying!
