FBI's Operation ReWired Targets International E-mail Scams [telecom]

By Jeffrey A. Greenbaum

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation announced more than 280 arrests in a law enforcement sweep aimed at schemes that trick individuals and businesses into wiring money to criminals.

The arrests were part of Operation reWired, which was a four-month, multi-agency law enforcement effort to disrupt and dismantle international business email compromise scams. These scams often target employees with access to company finances and trick them into making wire transfers to bank accounts thought to belong to trusted partners.
