For K-12 School Treasurers

Notice of EFT Scam on Projects
October 15, 2019

Several school district projects have recently experienced a very sophisticated scam in which an outside party has claimed to be a contractor or subcontractor and requested a change in bank accounts to receive electronic funds transfer of payments. These attempts to steal funds have included numerous phone calls, demonstrating some knowledge of the project participants and processes, and providing false email and bank account records in order to convince project participants to transfer pending and future payments to a different bank account.

If you are contacted, by phone or email, to change the routing of project payments to a different account, please independently verify through trusted project partners prior to making any changes. This may include requiring any changes to be made in-person during a standard project meeting. Also alert the project’s core team of any requests or attempts.
