    A Canadian University Fell For A Phishing Attack And Transferred $11.8 Million To A Random Bank Account

    The phishing attack included "the authentic logo and everything," according to a university spokesperson.

    A Canadian university says it fell for an email scam and ended up transferring $11.8 million to a bank account administrators thought belonged to a school vendor.

    “The university does not believe there has been any sort of collusion," MacEwan spokesperson David Beharry told reporters in a Thursday press conference. "We really believe this is simply a case of human error.”
