emails are personalized, well-crafted emails that look official and appear to be coming from a member of an organization's senior leadership. Often they ask for personal information or for money to be sent immediately. They are very convincing and can be alarming to the recipient. ANY email that asks for a wire transfer warrants a second set of eyes. If you have doubts about the email, request a second form of validation as a control to confirm the authenticity of the email. You can also ask your IT department to inspect the email to validate the legitimacy of the request.
