Israeli prosecutors indicted four people Wednesday for running an international scam that cost companies millions of dollars. The prosecutors said that the four men gathered information about employees who handle finances for major companies, as well as information about vendors they did business with. They then claimed to be the CEO of the company or a representative of the vendor and convinced employees to transfer money to them. The scam managed to net over $10 million for the defendants.

FBI officials recently put out a warning that Business E-mail scams, such as this, are on the rise. Since January 2015, there has been a 270% increase in this sort of scam. The scam itself has amounted to more than $2.3 billion in losses for companies. Furthermore, they advise that if your company has been the victim of such a scam to contact their financial institution immediately and file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)

The token itself is an identifier that maps back to the sensitive data through a tokenization system.
