Scammers are compromising business email accounts regularly. Emails being sent from scammers have been increasingly hard to detect. These emails appear to be like any other normal email you would receive. If a business partner, or an employee at an organization your company is working with, has a security incident their email account becomes compromised. The scammer can hijack that account and send hundreds of emails out to anyone they can find in that persons address book, inbox, or sent folder. If you get an email from a scammer that appears to come from a friend, a business associate, or company you are familiar with, you can distinguish the real emails from the malicious ones by asking yourself these questions. (1) Were you expecting this email? (2) Did you request or expect this attachment? This is very important in the business world especially with billings, and financial transactions. If you can't answer these questions, contact the sender directly by a means other than email to determine if they are the true sender of the message.
