Don't Fall For The Invoice Scams
How to make sure your company isn’t tricked into paying money to a fraudster
3 min read
If you or one of your employees received a letter or phone call from a supplier asking you to alter the bank account details you have on file for them, would you take it at face value?
All too often companies accept seemingly genuine requests only to find out too late that it’s a scam. Fraudsters go to great lengths to trick companies into sending them money. They glean information from press releases and testimonials to make themselves sound credible, and copy logos from the internet to create realistic letterheads. But once the account details have been changed on your system, the next time you pay an invoice the payment goes straight into the fraudster’s account.
