Boston University is investigating how someone managed the steal paychecks of 10 employees. The thefts were apparently the result of "phishing," in which someone uses a scheme to obtain access to email accounts or digital records. In this case, the person changed direct deposit information so that checks would not go into the accounts of employees, but instead elsewhere.
