For Business
November 25, 2018

It seems even our friends at Xero are not exempt from scams.

Scam emails are currently doing the rounds, seemingly from Xero.

The emails begin with the line ‘Dear Customer’ and prompt you to view your bill for a particular invoice. And if you check the sender,  the email is often from the sender ren.mazza@thesmallsofa.com Xero has advised this domain is not associated with Xero in any way and has requested that you do not make any payments, open any attachments or click any links.

Please just delete these emails as they are examples of phishing emails.

Here’s a quick reminder on how to pick a scam or phishing email:

  1. Ask yourself, are you expecting it – if no, don’t get curious and click just to see.
  2. Check the link is from the correct domain – in these cases they are usually a fake sub domain.
  3. If you aren’t sure, Google it and check for any known notices on the issue.

And here’s some more tips on Xero’s fake billing notifications direct from Xero.
