Got an email invoice from Beyond Diet that says you owe $3,250? Don’t do anything yet. It’s a scam!
Recently many people have received invoices from Beyond Diet via email that requesting a payment of $3,250. What’s tricky is that the sender’s email address looks legitimate:
Here’s your invoice! We appreciate your prompt payment. Thank you for your business – we appreciate it very much. Sincerely, Beyond Diet DUE 09/27/2021 $ 3,250.00 Review Powered by QuickBooks
Beyond Diet has already confirmed that the email was a phishing attempt. The email account firstname.lastname@example.org was hacked and used for phishing attacks on their customers:
