Protect Your Business and Customers From Business Email Compromise (BEC) Crimes in East Texas
April 23, 2019, 9:30 a.m.
There is an increase in Business Email Compromise (BEC) crimes in East Texas! 
Secret Service Agent, Bill Mack, educates on protecting your organization!  There is no charge for members to attend this meeting, but please register as seating is limited.

The US Secret Service, Tyler Resident Office has observed an increase in Business Email Compromise cases in the East Texas region. Victims can include small, medium and large businesses as well as government and non-profit organizations. Business email compromise, BEC for short, is a scam in which criminals compromise a business email account, often the CEO or CFO, then use that email account to direct a company's customers to make fraudulent payments. In East Texas, we have investigated cases of BEC crimes in which victims have lost anywhere from several thousand dollars to more than 1 million. The Tyler Resident Office of the US Secret Service seeks to raise awareness of BEC crimes here in East Texas so organizations can prevent themselves from being victims.
