HACKED WIRE TRANSFER: Officers were dispatched to a business to a report of fraud. The reporting told officers she wired money, like normal, to business supplier overseas. However, after the money was wired, the supplier contacted the reporting party and told her their email was hacked and the money transfer was intercepted. The reporting party tried to stop the money transfer but was too late. The bank traced the wire to another bank in Illinois, but the other bank refused to cooperate without police involvement. Officers advised the reporting party should contact the authorities in Illinois if she wants to pursue the case.
