We recently received calls from several clients asking if they should pay the “bill” from DNS Services for hosting and email servers. This was a surprise to us because we provide hosting and email services for these clients. Once the bill / invoice was scanned over to us, we quickly saw the scam. Notice the second paragraph,
“This is a solicitation for the order of goods or services or both and not a bil, invoice, or statement of account due. You are under no obligation to make any payments on account of this offer unless you accept this offer.”
This type of scam usually succeeds with the accounting department and busy small business owners who quickly pay what looks to be a real bill. If you receive this “bill” feel free to trash it or respond with a bill of your own, for wasting your time.
