Police are warning businesses in the MIA to be on the lookout for fake or edited invoices after a scam saw approximately $50,000 "misappropriated".
According to police, the work email of a Coleambally business was recently hacked and used to send multiple false invoices to suppliers in the area.
These invoices requested the suppliers amend incorrect bank details.
Money was then transferred to a seperate bank account, not connected to either of the businesses.
The scam was also used in reverse, with the Coleambally business receiving an email from a supplier, followed by a supplementary email asking them to amend banking details.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Investigations are ongoing but police are warning all businesses to check details on second invoices from businesses.
If the banking details have changed, contact the supplier and confirm the correct details.
If the second email is found to contain false information businesses should contact police and their bank immediately.
