Email invoicing scam
This is where a business receives an email for an invoice or sale of goods, and the account details have been changed. This happens when a scammer intercepts either the sender or receiver’s emails, so they can jump in and make changes to documents within the emails, which could lead to the amount on the invoice being paid to the scammer instead.
Send to receive scam
This involves scammers posing as a potential customer or client and reaching out to a business to ask them for money in order to set up a new business, under the condition that they’ll make a purchase once the payment has gone through. For example, they might ask for a $500 payment to help them get set up with their new business, under the promise that they’ll buy $2000 worth of products once they’re done.
