Purchase order Scam
What started as a scheme to deceive office supply stores has grew into a compound of crimes which would cost merchants around the country millions of dollars, the Nigerian cyber criminals committing the fraud had setup and advertised as an at –home business or personal website to get the unsuspicious user to be a coconspirators (The FBI: Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2014). FBI investigators are identifying it as purchase order fraud, and the criminals are clever. This was all conducted online or by telephone, the criminals would deceive merchants into thinking they were from a real business or corporation, even some were setup a educational organizations and want to purchase products. The retailers thought they were filling orders for well-known customers, however the merchandises was sent to other addresses , in which the clueless at-home Internet users were told to re- sending the merchandise to Nigeria (The FBI: Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2014).
The FBI Investigators found that more than 85 businesses and universities nationally had their identities used to commit the crime. About 400 genuine or attempted occurrences were directed to about 250 retailers, and approximately $5 million were lost (The FBI: Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2014). As more of the investigation continued more information was found by the FBI; the criminals setup up fake websites and email accounts to look like the real business that would make then virtually undistinguishable (The FBI: Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2014).
