Scam alert: Be suspicious of customers who want to overpay for orders

(page 2 of 2)

It might be wise to have policies in place that require your employees to only take payment for the amount of goods delivered. You may also want to require credit cards (with the three-digit security code) for any payment not made in person. Finally, make sure your own company checks are in a secure location (with limited access) so they don’t fall into the wrong hands.

For more information on scams directed at businesses, read my blog post “Keep your company safe from scammers” or visit www.bbb.org/scam-stopper.
