As a small business owner I aways recieve about 3 or 4 fake invoices each year. I wonder how these people get away with such open deceit. I have reported these scammers to the local police and the FBI and no one is interested. It seems easy to shut these people down by just going to the return adress.
PS. After 12 years is business, I am now closed down because of the economy. Where is my bail out?
