Businesses throughout the world, including Ireland, are being targeted by scammers.  These scams generally work in 2 ways:

  • The first involves scammers pretending to be legitimate suppliers sending emails advising of changes to payment arrangements/account numbers, and
  • The second is when the scammers pretend to be someone within your own company, who emails you to make a payment – often an urgent one.

In both cases the emails may look to be genuine, but email addresses are easy for criminals to fake.  Any payment instructions received on email should be verified verbally with a known contact.
