Fake invoice from DTG doing the rounds

14 January 2019

Fake invoices are doing the rounds supposedly coming from DTG (Dutch telephone directory and yellow pages). The attachment contains a bill for an advertising campaign. The money, € 786.50, needs to be paid into a Romanian bank account.

The invoice looks identical to authentic DTG invoices. Only the customer numbers, invoice numbers and address details don’t match the real customer data. Besides, DTG never uses a Romanian bank account number.

The email has been sent out in large numbers, both to DTG customers and to people who have no contract with the company.

Our advice
Don’t respond if you have received such an invoice from DTG. Please forward it to valse-email@fraudehelpdesk.nl before deleting it from your mailbox. If you have paid, pleas report to the police.

Here’s an example:
