Some Chamber members have reported a new scam involving mobile sim cards & SMEs  appear to be a target. Hackers are gaining access through online telco accounts, where they request sim cards be redirected to their mobile numbers.

Simultaneously they hack online bank accounts & emails. Once the mobile number has been redirected they transfer account funds & the bank authorisation/notification is sent to their mobile phone, giving them full authorisation to complete the transaction and leaving you unaware.

This is just to advise you to be very aware of any unusual bank transactions you notice.
