ISME, the Irish Small & Medium Enterprises Association, today, Tuesday 2nd August 2016, has warned all businesses of an increase in the number of scam attempts currently being experienced. Many of these scams have convincing fake email addresses and websites, and international business directory scams are especially prominent. The Association estimated that these criminal activities were costing millions and advised SMEs to put in place policies to prevent these new and intricate ‘rip-offs’ of unsuspecting businesses.
