The Community College System of New Hampshire says it has recovered most of the $130,000 it lost in a wire fraud incident last month.  CCSNH is still out $6,000, according to Community College spokesperson, Shannon Reid. The system was tricked into paying a fake bill by a scammer last month, but was able to reverse the transfer of most of that money. Reid says other colleges have been targeted in similar incidents, and that CCSNH has developed new security practices since the incident occurred.
