Precipitating
thumb Chemical Precipitation
Precipitation is the formation of a solid in a solution or inside another solid during a chemical reaction or by diffusion in a solid. When the reaction occurs in a liquid, the solid formed is called the precipitate. The chemical that causes the solid to form is called the precipitant. Without sufficient force of gravity (settling) to bring the solid particles together, the precipitate remains in suspension. After sedimentation, especially when using a centrifuge to press it into a compact mass, the precipitate may be referred to as a pellet. The precipitate-free liquid remaining above the solid is called the supernate or supernatant. Powders derived from precipitation have also historically been known as flowers.
Precipitation may occur if the concentration of a compound exceeds its solubility (such as when mixing solvents or changing their temperature). Precipitation may occur rapidly from a supersaturated solution.
In solids, precipitation occurs if the concentration of one solid is above the solubility limit in the host solid, due to e.g. rapid quenching or ion implantation, and the temperature is high enough that diffusion can lead to segregation into precipitates. Precipitation in solids is routinely used to synthesize nanoclusters.
An important stage of the precipitation process is the onset of nucleation. The creation of a hypothetical solid particle includes the formation of an interface, which requires some energy based on the relative surface energy of the solid and the solution. If this energy is not available, and no suitable nucleation surface is available, supersaturation occurs.

Law firm fell victim to phishing scam, precipitating $336K overseas wire transfer, bank suit alleges - ABA Journal
A North Carolina bank claims in a lawsuit that it isn’t responsible for a $336,600 wire transfer to Russia from a law firm account. The suit by Charlotte-based Park Sterling Bank claims the law firm of Wallace & Pittman fell victim to a phishing scam that began with a click on a link in a fraudulent email, the Charlotte Observer reports. The email claimed to be from an industry group and warned that a banking transaction had failed to clear. Because of the clicked link, hackers were able to track a user’s keystrokes and learn banking passwords used by Wallace & Pittman, the suit says. Hackers used the passwords to send $336,600 to a “Konstantin Pomogalove” in Moscow, according to legal documents cited by the newspaper. After receiving notice of the transaction, the law firm immediately sought to stop the transfer. Nevertheless, the call was too late,…

So it's as we were, really.
