What is Email Modification Fraud?

Email Modification Fraud is when criminals intercept and make changes to emails between a client and their firm, or else send entirely new emails that look like they came from either the firm or the client.

The fraudster's objective is to fool the recipient into performing certain action - for example revealing sensitive information or transferring funds to a false bank account.
