TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Tulsa Police Department is warning residents about a scam that targets businesses and organizations with emails asking for money.

The department’s Cyber Crimes Unit said Tuesday that it has received multiple reports that various companies are receiving emails that request money transfers to financial institutions in other states.

The email messages appear as if  they are sent by the company CEO or vice president and are directed to individuals within a company or organization who have the ability to transfer and wire funds.

Officers say companies should urge employees to confirm these emails and keep strong passwords to their email accounts.
