TD Bank Security Alert - Wire Transfer E-mail Fraud

 

Dated: December 4, 2015

We at TD Bank want to alert you to the significant increase in businesses being victimized by fraudulent wire transfer scams perpetrated by e-mail. The specifics of the frauds vary, but their common goal is to send an e-mail message that appears to be a legitimate request for a wire transfer to a specific account, when the request is actually fraudulent and the destination account is controlled by the fraudster. The e-mail is directed to an employee at a business and typically appears to be from a higher-level individual at the same company. TD Bank advises customers not to arrange wire transfers solely by e-mail. All wire transfer requests should be confirmed by a second verification process that cannot be intercepted and manipulated by e-mail hackers prior to initiation with us. Please refer to your customer agreement for the terms and conditions governing your account.
