Adelaide Businesses Scammed Out Of Millions
Police are warning of an invoice scam operating in South Australia. Scammers have already conned $2 million out of businesses across the state this month.
The scam involves businesses being asked to deposit funds to a ‘money mule’ who is reportedly located in New South Wales. A company masquerading as a supplier, instructed the businesses to update their banking details and were provided with fake invoices. Police suspect an overseas scam group to be responsible.
Police are warning local businesses to double check all requests from third parties to ensure they don’t become the next victim.
Investigations into the scam are continuing and police are hopeful of recovering the remaining $1.45 million. It follows a spate of similar crimes in Queensland.
