Business Scams are Getting Sophisticated

A small west Wales business was nearly tricked out of thousands of pounds.

Over the weekend a client of mine asked me to look at the Manager's email account as they thought it had been hacked.

The Accountant had received an email from the Manager asking for a bank transfer to be made, thankfully the Accountant sought clarification about a minor matter by replying to the email, and it was when they then received the "advice" by return that the alarm bells rang!
