Double check professional email addresses

Business email compromise (BEC) is a type of cyberattack that targets people who conduct business through email. Through this scam, hackers pretend to work for a company and attempt to get money out of employees by offering them fake services in exchange. Always double check professional email addresses by looking up the person in question and finding their professional contact information on their company’s website. It could be as subtle as a difference as [email protected] vs. [email protected].
