On May 14, a 67-year-old woman living on E. 87th Street reported that on Friday, April 26, an unknown suspect attempted to perform a wire transfer through her management company financial planner via e-mails. The unknown suspect had access to the victim's e-mail address and submitted to her management company the information and location where the money was to be transferred to. Fortunately, no funds were withdrawn because the management company contacted the victim and inquired about the request. The victim confirmed that she had given no authorization for the transfer.
