Business E-Mail Compromise (BEC)

Invoices that have already been received are sent again with a changed IBAN number or with the remark to usea different account number for future payments.

This type of fraud refers to an existing email containing a payment order or invoice. The IBAN number to which the amount is to be paid is then altered. In order to access the email, attackers must have had access to either the sender's or the recipient's email account.
