My sister in law is a retired bank manager. A few months ago we were speaking of scams and fraud and she spoke of how they were always being updated to monitor certain people/accounts etc. It was interesting to hear it from that side of things.
Today, my brother told me how they just dodged a bullet this week as someone "from the bank" had my sister in law fooled. This guy had an experienced banker just about fooled, until he mentioned Western Union. In the end, nothing "bad" happened, but they have changed all their bank info as a precaution.
My sister in law is feeling so angry at herself. As she said, had it been one of her clients, she would have spotted it right away, but when it is yourself? She got drawn in.
I post this as a reminder of why we do what we do, but also, sadly, even knowledgeable people get pulled into this stuff.

That certainly sounds like a close call..and when that happens to a relative I can imagine it hits close to home.

Good thing she ultimately had clearness of mind and recognized the scam!
