I received a couple of emails recently (two different people in space of one week) which seem similar in content.
I replied to the first email and sent me a link stating it all the documents were in dropbox. I thought it was unusual for a client to send their documents (i.e bank statements invoices etc) up front. I clicked on it but received a message in a red screen saying the link was unsafe. In fact the website address was not to dropbox but something else which raised my suspicions. I tried emailing the person but automated reply came back stating my messages were blocked
1) I'm looking to contract a new accountant for my partner's self assessment and my company tax computations etc
My accountant retired recently and I hope to be ready for the next vat submission.
My annual turn over is usually within £230k to £350k. What are your
cost to carry out my company finances?. Can you provide me with a quote if i send bank statements/payroll and expenses
Today receive the following. Something seems suspicious about this email too:
2) We are interested in your service,Can you give me an
estimate if i send bank statements/payrole.
Our annual turn over is usually within £390k to £550k.
Wondering what the scam could be ? Has anyone else received such emails ?
