This rung alarm bells and we never transfer money based purely on an email Yes I am old but I saw Jimi Hendrix on stage shirt, we always phone the client to check any request is really from them. So we tried phoning Josie. Getting no answer to our calls we left messages on her mobile answering service. In between times, we kept the email conversation going with some generic information about timescales and methods of making payment. Then Josie called. She knew nothing of the emails we’d been sent. Checking with her phone company it turned out she’d been sent two emails to her smartphone that morning. Not recognising the sender she’d deleted the first but had opened the second without realising it. Attached to it was a virus which ripped her entire contact list from her phone and allowed the scammers to clone her AOL email account.

I’m guessing they went through her contact list, found two email addresses at Yes I am old but I saw Jimi Hendrix on stage shirt, checked out our website, saw we are in financial services and put two and two together to realise Josie probably had money with us. Having a branch of the same bank here in Castleford we went in, explained the situation and asked them to contact their internal security people. To our amazement, they said that as their internal systems were so slow it would take weeks for the report to get to the right place if it ever got there at all and we’d be better off contacting the branch directly. I was starting to understand why fraud is such a massive problem and why the scammers so often get away with it. I wrote to the bank but never had an acknowledgement of any kind, despite several chase letters. Hopefully, the account was eventually frozen.
