Invoice scams

Fake invoice scams happen when fraudsters send an invoice or bill to a company, requesting payment for goods or services.

The invoice might say that the due date for the payment has passed, or threaten that non-payment will affect credit rating.

In fact, the invoice is fake and is for goods and services that haven’t been ordered or received.
