Sunwest Bank is issuing a strong warning to their customers to watch out for a new fraud related scheme associate with Covid-19 and the Paycheck Protection Program.
Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is currently tracking an unknown malicious cyber actor who is spoofing the Small Business Administration (SBA) COVID-19 loan relief webpage via phishing emails. These emails include a malicious link to the spoofed SBA website that the cyber actor is using for malicious re-directs and credential stealing.
These links are fraudulent!
