SCAM? Strategic Business Communications

I received an email from one of my bosses saying please define the job code for this invoice.


I knew nothing about them so I wrote back and copied Diane. She did some research and then Tiffany found some links that assert their invoices are fraudulent. Diane followed up with some additional research and found:

Apparently, their business model is to send out fake invoices. Glad the company was so diligent to research. Wow!

  2. This scam is still active, we received an invoice from Strategic Business Communications but the amount was 3495. I initially thought it was a media vendor we do business with, after a little research and a link, thankfully, to your blog we were able to determine it's a scam. Thanks you! ~dr

  4. It appears the scam is still active. We just received a paper mail invoice for $3,495.00 addressed to "Accounts Payable" at our office address. We are only a 2-man team, so it was easy to confirm this was not for any service either of us signed up for.
