NACHA has released Operations Bulletin #1-2017

Fraudsters have used these social engineering techniques to manipulate public-sector entities into redirecting legitimate vendor payments to accounts controlled by the fraudsters. Although any business entity could be the target of this type of social engineering attack, public-sector entities seem to be specifically targeted because their contracting information is often a matter of public record.
