Attempted Fraudulent Activity

On October 31, 2019 a small business in Westmoreland County was contacted for catering work. The suspect party contacted the business via email asking them for a quote to cater a family reunion. After providing the quote, the business was asked if they would accept credit cards as payment. The suspect party then asked if they could send the business an email containing a link to pay via QuickBooks. Please be cautious if your business is approached with similar activity and do not alter your normal course of business for receiving payments.
