In the first known case of successful financial scamming via audio deep fakes, cybercrooks were able to create a near-perfect impersonation of a chief executive’s voice – and then used the audio to fool his company into transferring $243,000 to their bank account.
The person who transferred the money believed that they were doing so with the express permission of the CEO and they followed instructions. The only problem was that they were talking to a computer program and not the real CEO.
Given the fact that this type of scam has worked successfully you have to assume that you will be targeted at some point so please always triple check that you are talking to a real person from now on and not a computer program that sounds like one.
Please let me know if you need anything else.
