Vendor Impersonation Payment Inquiry BEC Attack
This text-based BEC attack impersonates a vendor/supplier using email address spoofing, a free webmail account, an overdue payment theme, and a payment account update theme to request a fraudulent payment.
Greetings and best wishes from us.
Please confirm the status of your Due/Outstanding Invoices for reconciliation purposes with the total amount and corresponding due dates as there has been a new development in our company.
Kindly hold off on payment till you get our new payment information from us.
Thank you in anticipation of your reply.
