55th Largest Private Company In America Sent Millions To China Because An Email Told Them To

You’ve all heard of this kind of scam before. Some nefarious person or group gets a hold of someone’s email or computer screen, pretends to be someone in some official capacity, and demands a whatever sum of money they can get away with. Some of the time these scammers pretend to be the IRS, or a utility company, or even law enforcement. What these scams tend to mostly have in common is that they go after private citizens en masse, in the hope to entice whatever percentage of the more gullible amongst us to pay up. What you don’t expect to hear about is one of the largest corporations in the United States essentially falling for the same thing.
