NB! New payment fraud in circulation IMPORTANT INFORMATION

A so-called phishing attack in the form of business email compromise (BEC) has been launched against Lund University. You receive an email which seems to originate from a close colleague, requesting a rapid transfer of money. Further emails follow shortly asking whether you have received the bank information and whether the money is on its way. DO NOT ANSWER THESE EMAILS at all.

In other cases, invoices have been intercepted at the supplier end and payment information has been changed. You must therefore be extra careful to CHECK THAT THE PAYMENT INFORMATION on invoices and in Lupin matches that agreed on the order. The details can be wrong in Lupin as they are based on what appears on the invoice. Only the person who placed the order knows what was agreed at the time.

If you notice irregularities, CONTACT THE CHIEF SECURITY OFFICER Per Gustafson per.gustafson [at] bygg.lu.se immediately so that measures can be taken to avoid money being incorrectly paid out.

The LU Finance pages contain more in-depth information on business email compromise and phishing.
