Types of scams
There are a number of techniques scammers use to trick staff into divulging either your business’ information or money.

The reality is that tricking someone into clicking a link that downloads malicious software, or simply transferring money somewhere they shouldn’t, is often cheap and easy. That’s why it’s vital to educate your staff on what common scams look like so they can recognise them, report them and help safeguard your business from potentially costly mistakes.
