TruStage RISK Alert: Vendor Impersonation Fraud

In a scam closely related to the business email compromise (BEC) or fraudulent instruction scam, fraudsters are impersonating vendors/suppliers used by credit unions.

Credit unions receive a spoofed email — appearing to come from the vendor/supplier — with updated banking information for paying invoices by ACH or wire. The fraudulent emails do not request payment from credit unions. As legitimate invoices are received from the actual vendors/suppliers, credit unions remit payment by ACH or wire using the updated, fraudulent banking information allowing the fraudsters to intercept payments.
