Small Businesses vs. Big Scammers
It is no secret, and the statistics from last year prove, that scams are prevalent in nearly all aspects of life. From your finances to your heart, scammers are after you… and your business. If you are a small business owner, do not think you are too small to be targeted; you could still be the victim of a big scam.
Educate yourself and your staff to spot a scam before it’s too late. The Federal Trade Commission publishes “Scams and Your Small Business: A Guide for Business.” These are the common scams they list:
- Fake Invoices
- Unordered Office Supplies and Other Products
- Directory Listing and Advertising Scams
- Utility Company Imposter Scams
- Government Agency Imposter Scams
- Tech Support Scams
- Social Engineering, Phishing and Ransomware
- Business Promotion and Coaching Scams
- Changing Online Reviews
- Credit Card Processing and Equipment leasing Scams
- Face Check Scams
Protect Your Bottom Line
Putting up a good defense is the best offense in this ongoing battle against the big-bad-scammers.
