"But you would think savvy enterprises would have a Plan B and C ready on hand in case of stuff like this, given this is to them The Cost Of Doing Business."

Exactly - and their actual "cost" of doing business is very low - the mules only get paid if they complete the transfer so this hasn't been a big expense - chances are they are working the scam somewhere else with the same data as I type. While this sort of declaration of victory looks good in the end of year report, it doesn't usually cause much of a problem to the people running the scam.
