Small Business Owners / Comptrollers - Just an FYI
« on: February 13, 2016, 07:02:30 AM »
Koala PSA.  If you handle money for a Small / Medium sized business, or if you have someone handling the money of your Small / Medium sized business, you should strongly consider enacting a policy that any bank transfers or wire transfers for any Account Payable should be authorized by actual conversation.  There are a ton of scam artists right now spoofing CEO / CFO / C-Level emails to look like it came from that person (once they farm that person from website), and sending emails phishing for hopefully someone who has the authority to send business money.  It's something that has come across my desk for investigation a few times, so I figured I'd cast a PSA wide and loud to nip it in the bud if possible.
