Important security alert from the Charity Commission

The Charity Commission has received several reports from charities who have been targeted by fraudsters impersonating members of staff via email, specifically attempting to change employees' bank details.

The Commission is warning charities to be vigilant and to look out for requests to your HR department, finance department or staff with authority to update employees' bank details, usually from a spoofed or similar email address to that of the subject being impersonated. The fraudster often states that they have changed their bank details or opened a new bank account.
