Wire Transfer Red Flags

By Joanne McDaid, CFCS – AVP, Operations Officer
Cybercriminals are getting more aggressive in targeting money through wire transfer
requests. The number of attempts is on the rise and scammers are getting bolder and
more sophisticated in their efforts to trick consumers into wiring funds. Criminals like to
use wire transfers because the money moves fast and is difficult to get back.  While you
can’t always stop your customers from being victims of wire transfer scams, you can help
minimize wire transfer risk to your institution by having the right controls in place.*
