The cyber-hacking of an email of a contractor for Macomb County Public Works resulted in the county being scammed out of a $700,000 payment to a contractor for a project, although some money has been recovered.

“Unfortunately, the county was a victim of this elaborate scheme,” said Brian Baker, deputy commissioner of county Public Works, told The Macomb Daily. “It was a series of misfortunate events.”
