Business Payroll scam alert *ATTN Schools & Govt Offices*

We now have multiple businesses in the County who are receiving emails requesting that an employees direct deposit be changed from it's current account to a green dot bank account.  The scam email will purport to be an employee of your business and state that they are having issues with their current bank account requesting that their direct deposit be changed to a new account.  Businesses need to be diligent in verifying any requested direct deposit changes.  A suggestion would be contacting the employee directly to ensure it is them requesting the change.
Our cases are under investigation but are definitely related to each other.  So far, attempts have been made in government and public school payrolls.
