New fake invoice from OfficeSmart

5 December 2018

OfficeSmart has revamped its fake invoices. This time, they are sending a ‘bill’ for a software package.

Recipients are informed that they have ordered an ‘SAS Statistical Analysis Software Package’, worth € 990. However, this is just an offer, not an invoice, which means you are under no obligation to pay.

Here’s an example):

This is not the first time we’ve published a warning about fake invoices from OfficeSmart. Previous scam emails were doing the rounds in 2016 and 2017.

Our advice
Please read the small print of every invoice you receive. Scammers often disguise their offers as bills. Don’t pay these bills. If you do, you will lose your money and you often get nothing in return.
