At Venely Capital, we are dedicated to protecting our customers, the public, and ourselves from external fraud. Criminals are constantly creating new and innovative ways to defraud both companies and individuals. Two examples of the most common methods used by criminals are invoice and CEO scams.
Fraudsters will impersonate regular suppliers, asking customers to update their payment details. They do this to intercept any onward payments you make. To prevent this from happening, always verify any change of bank details by contacting your supplier directly.
Criminals may pose as your manager and request an urgent payment that falls outside the scope of the company’s internal procedures. Always verify this type of request directly with your manager.
If you believe you have been a victim of fraud, please contact us via:
- Your relationship manager
- Email us at email@example.com
In all instances, if you think you are a victim of fraud, we recommend that you report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and contact your bank.
