There have been several large scale vulnerabilities discovered worldwide recently that have resulted in, among other things, many email accounts being compromised. As a result, financial institutions across the country, including Kish, have been seeing an increase in the number of fraud attempts coming from legitimate email accounts.
Fraudsters use the hacked email account (or an email address that looks very similar to the legitimate email address) to send emails to financial institutions with requests for wire transfers, adding authorized signers to accounts, adding users to digital banking accounts, etc.
