During National Small Business Week, Better Business Bureau warns that businesses are a prime target for impostor invoices, postcards, notices, emails and visitors touting:
Always keep good records, check the books, be wary of deadlines and read the fine print. Remember:
- New business solicitations should be presented as optional and include disclaimers.
- Current vendors should be able to verify existing contracts and accounts.
- Government records and business registrations should be accessible online for free or a small fee.
