Be aware of an invoice phishing attempt
A number of Ontario lawyers have reported receiving a phishing attempt that tried to entice the recipient to click on a link which likely will attempt to install malware or direct the user to a suspicious site. When hovering over the link, the site displayed is phenixsportsmensclub.com/intuit.
The emails all have a number of similar characteristics:
- unsolicited invoice from an unfamiliar vendor (LM Language Services, Orange Belt Stages)
- Invoice # specified in the the subject line
- body mentions “Please find your invoice enclosed. We appreciate your prompt payment. With kind regards”
