Website Backup Scam

This scam was sent to a client of ours and luckily they asked what the bill was about instead of blindly just paying the $70 invoice.


Basic steps to prevent getting “hoodwinked” by fake companies like this:
1.  Google!  Simply type  “company name” and “scam” into the Google search box.
2.  Ask your current IT consultants if they are familiar with the company and/or the invoice.
3.  Contact the company and ask who authorized the purchase or service agreement.  Request proof of this authorization.
