SOU still out $1.3 million in email fraud

Sep 20, 2017

Southern Oregon University has recovered less than a third of the $1.9 million it was bilked out of in an email fraud earlier this year.

In April, the university wired $1.9 million to fraudsters posing as the construction contractor for the McNeal Pavilion and Student Recreation Center project. Of that amount, $609,000 was recovered earlier this summer, according to SOU spokesman Joe Mosley.

“It’s money that remained in the frozen bank account,” Mosley said.
