Refund Scam

What is a Refund scam?

Refund scams often begin with spam emails or messages claiming a fake transaction. They provide a phone number to cancel the transaction, where scammers will try to obtain your credit card or banking details under the guise of issuing a refund.

Moreover, scammers will consistently try to exploit various companies’ invoicing systems to make them look as authentic as possible.

How can you stay safe?

Remember not to trust unsolicited emails or messages about refunds, especially if they ask for personal or financial information. If you receive such a message, don’t call any provided numbers or click on any links. Instead, verify the transaction directly through the official website or contact the company’s customer service using trusted contact information. For more information on what to do if you’ve already clicked the link, please contact us by using the number listed on the Footer.
