Email Fraud, invoice fraud protection

Paying a bill or invoice that has been sent via email should be studied for inconsistencies.

Receiving payment details for the very first time

Check the email address of the sender. Look for small differences in the email address, like .org changing to   .co.uk or a letter added or taken away in an email:

Johnsmith86@hotmail.com

Johnsmiith86@hotmail.com

Both look the exact same but are completely different.

Always double check the details with the sender.

If it is a company, then call the main contact number never the number in the email received and simply ask them to confirm what has been received.

If the person or company emailed the information to you after they received it from another party, you must tell them to go back and confirm that the information is legitimate using the same method above.

Do not make that payment unless you are certain that it has been double checked.

Receiving an email about a change of payment details

This is highly suspicious as it is not often that companies or people change bank details, of course it does happen, and the time spent to double check is more than worth the peace of mind.

Simply follow the instructions above by checking the email received for inconsistencies, look for phone numbers that do not match the person or company you are dealing with. Then follow the process of calling the source directly to confirm the legitimacy of the email.

If the person or company emailed the information to you after they received it from another party, you must tell them to go back and confirm that the information is legitimate using the same method above.

Do not make that payment unless you are certain that it has been double checked.
