The typical pattern goes this way:
|The fraudster assume the identity of a valid contact person that receives payment|
|TT and Swift code and a different Bank Account provided|
|The admin or accounting staffs transfer the funds|
* names of actual participants and companies are substituted
Pharmaceutical company XYZ Sdn Bhd have been paying to respective providers of medicine products for the last 7 years.
Cik Salmah, a veteran admin on the accounts received an email informing her that the receiver wants the money to be transferred to a new bank account amounting to UDS 6,000.
The details of the invoice is the same as the company that has always dealt with her and so was the email contact. Without much suspicion she performed the TT.
InternetNow investigated into the case and noticed that their hosting was compromised, emails are forwarded from the hosting to a gmail account. This was not noticed by the IT dept nor Cik Salmah because she use Outlook to download from the inbox only.
The fraudster clearly knew the name/password of her mailbox and uses a "blackberry" to forward selected transactional related mails to a gmail account.
