Businesses can get caught out by scams, and small firms are particularly at risk. If you run a business, it is worth spending some time thinking about what type of scams are out there and what you can do to avoid them. You should remain vigilant because scams change, new ones appear all the time and the old ones morph into new variations.

Business scams generally fall into six categories:

1. Business advertising scams

2. unsolicited goods

3. Cheque scams

4. Internet website registration

5. Business rates scam

6. Mandate fraud
