Be aware of this new scam! We have gotten several phone calls in the last two days from florists who received a fake invoice for a domain name renewal through the mail. (Update: Florists area also receiving phone calls requesting payments.)
Florists with FSN websites, as well as those without need to pay close attention to any bill they receive, especially concerning their web domain or hosting. If it looks different or you notice anything unusual, contact your service provider and ask if it is a legitimate bill before paying.
If you have an FSN website, please note that your domain hosting is always FREE, and we take care of the renewals for you. (Click here for more information about FSN Websites)
One florist faxed us a copy of one of these fake bills. They have gone out of their way to make sure it looks real, including business information, fake account number and more. However, if you read closely you will see it says, “This is a solicitation for the order of goods or services, or both, and not a bill, invoice or statement of account due. You are under no obligation to make any payments on account of this offer unless you accept this offer.”
Below is an example of one of the ‘invoices’ received by one of our florists.
If you receive one of these invoices, just discard.
