Fraud – Invoice Redirect

Detective Superintendent Gerard Walsh from the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau was in studio to talk about a scam known as “Invoice Redirect”. One form of Invoice redirection is when fraudsters use information posted online and on social media accounts. One example of this type of fraud see accounts departments in companies being sent an email asking to change banking details for an existing creditor for payment of an invoice and typically the sender’s email address will look almost identical to the genuine one with just a letter or a dot in the wrong place.

Gerry offered advice to individuals, retailers and companies on how to prevent such a scam.
