A scammer sets up an email address that looks like it’s from your company.
Then the scammer sends out messages using that email address. This practice is called spoofing, and the scammer is what we call a business email imposter.
Scammers do this to get passwords and bank account numbers or to get someone to send them money. When this happens, your company has a lot to lose. Customers and partners might lose trust and take their business elsewhere-and your business could lose money.
