CEO Fraud Security Alert!
Please be aware that there have been recent fraudulent e-mails received by our channel partners impersonating MSA's CEO. Thank you in advance for being conscientious of this situation and playing a key role in MSA's overall security.
CEO Fraud is a popular tactic used by threat actors to steal money and confidential information from organizations. As a $26 Billion scam, CEO Fraud is a threat from which all organizations should be cautious.
MSA has recently been made aware that multiple channel partners received an e-mail attempting to impersonate our CEO, Nish Vartanian. Recipients who reply to the e-mail would be notified of a fraudulent account to wire funds to, in order to pay for discounted items.
We would like to ask for your continued diligence to all e-mails received with reference to MSA. First and foremost, we would like to remind everyone that all e-mails sent from our CEO will be signed as "Nish" not "Nishan." Other red flags that have been noted include:
- Ceo punctuation is incorrect and should be CEO.
- From e-mail address is NJV@msasafety.com, which does not match MSA's format.
- Overall poor sentence grammar.
- Request for an urgent reply within 24 hours.
- Tabs across bottom are not active hyperlinks.
We appreciate your attention to this matter as we rely on each of you to play a key role in the overall security of MSA. Please direct any questions you may have to the MSA CSI team at CSI@MSAsafety.com.
