Australian council loses $500k due to scammers

 
 

The local council for Brisbane in Australia has been robbed of around $450,000 (£248,000). This was down to email scammers, the scammers tricked the staff into paying money into their accounts. The scammers used emails and phone calls pretending to be one of the council’s suppliers.

These types of scams are becoming more frequent with more businesses falling for these tricks. Businesses are losing thousands a year due to these scams. They are becoming harder to spot, and looking more and more genuine.
