Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill
I am a Director of a volleyball club, South River Volleyball Club. My treasurer received an e-mail from a person requesting payment; here is text of e-mail:
I need you to process a payment of $1,850 kindly let me know once the payment as been completed
Bank Name :- KeyBank
client name :- Jim Collins
Routine Number :- 021300077
Account Number :- 325317017573
Address :- 5387 State Route 23
PO BOX 98 Windham NY 12496
Only a wire transaction would fulfill the payment not a check. My treasurer just happened to text me that she was at the bank. I had no idea why. She called me and we soon realized that the request was a scam. I would never ask her to send money via an e-mail; I would have called her especially if there was specific instructions such as wiring the money.
The e-mail looked like it came from me because the sender e-mail was mine. However, there is no indication that someone was in my account. If they logged into my account from another device, I would have received a code on my cell phone unless they now have means to by-pass that. I have since changed my password.
