Business E-mail Compromise (BEC)/E-mail Account Compromise (EAC) is a sophisticated scam targeting both businesses and individuals who are performing wire transfer payments.

The scam is frequently carried out when a subject compromises legitimate business e-mail accounts through social engineering or computer intrusion techniques to conduct unauthorized transfers of funds.

The BEC/EAC scam continues to grow and evolve by targeting small, medium and large business, and personal transactions. These include title companies, law firms, real estate agents, sellers, buyers and more. To date, losses exceed $12 billion with more than 78, 000 victims. 

FBI agents will share information on the scam.
