Watch out for the ‘Copy of your Invoice’ Scam

You receive an email supposedly from some online company with a subject line of ‘Copy of your {company} invoice (xxx-xxxxxxxxx) and there’s a Microsoft Word attachment. You might recognize the company name or are just concerned about something being ordered in your name so you click and open the attachment. Boom – you just infected your computer with a key logging virus.

We’ll give the same advice we always give our customers; make sure your antivirus software is up-to-date and working correctly, make sure you have a good firewall either for your business or installed locally on your computer, and stop and think before you click.

Stay safe out there!
