Notice of Cyber Crime Event

On November 17, 2023, Dallas County became aware of a potential fraudulent payment in the amount of $2.4 million dollars unrelated to the October cyber incident. All evidence was turned over to the FBI suggesting that Dallas County was the victim of a cyber crime. It appears the criminal used a fraudulent business email impersonating one of our partners and engaged in social engineering. Dallas County immediately began an investigation and remedial measures are being taken.
