My email account was hacked on 15th July.
fraudsters from South Africa got into my office 365 account and sent out several emails and one client that I know about paid £30k to the fraudsters account. It wasn’t fees, they asked me a question about receiving money into a personal account rather than their business account, and I said to transfer it into their business account. The fraudsters intercepted my email chain and persuaded them to send it to my “trust account” which was of course fraudulent.
the bank that had the money, hsbc in Sheffield
my pii insurers
my public liability insurers
the client is holding me liable, on the basis that my account was hacked.
my password was high security, upper and lower case, numbers and a symbol
any advice about bout what I should do?
