Confero received notification of a fake email scam today, from someone, “Oliver” claiming to work for Confero. The email was from .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  We have no employee named Oliver, and our email addresses are conferoinc.com not conferoinc.net.    The scam asks for the person to send his/her mailing address.  Please do not fall for these false requests.

WE DO NOT HAVE AN EMPLOYEE OR WORK WITH A CONTRACTOR NAMED Oliver!

Please do not contact this person by any means, as he is trying to scam people.  These scams almost always result in consumers becoming duped into a fake check scam. In fake check scams, shoppers are sent checks to deposit, then told to wire most of the funds elsewhere and keep the difference. Ultimately, the check the scammer sent the shopper turns out to be worthless and the shopper is on the hook to cover the entire check with the bank. Some of the checks look quite real - so real in fact that bank tellers see them all the time. BE CAREFUL! 

And, just so you know:

1.      Confero NEVER issues checks to shoppers for any reason. Our payments to shoppers are sent via PayPal or Direct Deposit. 

2.      Emails from Confero employees will come from conferoinc.com, not conferoinc.net.   We don’t ask shoppers to provide their mailing addresses as this information is added to the shopper profile when shoppers sign up online with us.

 

We thank the person who brought this to our attention, so that we were able to warn others of this scam.  If you would like to read more about scams, please visit our website: http://www.conferoinc.com/shoppers-center/consumer-alerts/
