I received a customer phishing email today that gave me pause for concern. It was fraud, but it appeared like a realistic email with my competitor’s official Logo. The email said the following:
We are currently looking to get all outstanding invoices processed and paid at the earliest convenience and would like to request an up-to-date statement of our account showing all unpaid / outstanding invoices for our reference.
Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

This email was sent from a Gmail account, not the official company website address account. The recipient had no name “Good Day”. The phone number listed does not correspond to their company website phone numbers.
Don’t fall for this scam! You will never receive an email from our company like this one.
Our email addresses are always from @kineticdc.com
We only use one phone number in our communications 818-982-9200.
