AGENT ALERT - Fraudulent Email from Underwriters

istock000020489044xsmall Recently, a rash of emails that appear to be sent from underwriters directly to the agents, are asking them to “CONFIRM YOUR WIRE INSTRUCTIONS WITH US.”  The email message asks for your wiring instructions to be sent to an email address from the underwriter.

This is a fraudulent email and may contain executable files if you click on the link attachment in the email.  Some of the attachments in the emails are labeled as WireReport.exe, however it is a Trojan horse malware program.

The emails should be deleted and do not click on any attachments.  If you have received an email similar to this and have questions, please contact your underwriter directly.
