Scam medium:

  • Phone and fax

Targeting:

  • Businesses

A scammer calls a business to confirm details such as the company's address and telephone number.

After your confirmation, the scammer sends you an invoice asking for payment for a directory listing or renewal. They may record the initial conversation and use that against you.

Business owners should tell employees at every level to be wary of unsolicited calls. For further protection, only give payment authority to a small number of staff.
