Police warn of fake invoice scam

Fri, 20 Jan 2017

Police are warning of scammers targeting businesses on the Island with bogus invoices.

Officers in Douglas were contacted after one business almost paid a bill which appeared legimate before realising it was a hoax.

Companies are being urged to ensure all invoices are legitimate before sending payment, particuarly those sent by email and paid electronically.

The police say a company would have lost a significant sum of money had it not noticed the payment details on the invoice were incorrect, alerting them to the scam.
