What to do if you receive a suspicious e-mail

How to protect against phishing in business e-mail communication

  • Whether it is an e-mail under the signature of our company or your other business partners, always check the sender’s name and e-mail address when you receive a suspicious request to resolve financial matters. Please check the e-mail header and the sender’s address before sending any reply, because the sender’s address may differ from the recipient's address.
  • Look for subtle details in the domain, typos, swapped words etc. The address may look legitimate but it is incorrect, for example instead of
  • Look for grammar mistakes, missing diacritics, typos and inaccuracies in the text and signature. Scammers often use automatic translators that tend to be incorrect.
  • Do not be tricked into the illusion of time pressure. Scam e-mails often try to exert pressure and give you the impression that something needs to be done immediately. Whenever you get a similar feeling from an e-mail, pause and take a moment to consider whether it is a scam.
  • Never click on any links or attachments included in the e-mail. They usually contain malware meant to steal personal data, bank account access and other important information. The same applies to any kind of icons, buttons and images.

Ensure your e-mail server is secure

Unfortunately, we cannot control the distribution of these scam e-mails. For this reason, we kindly ask you to have your e-mail security verified by your e-mail server administrator, in particular the following:

  • SPF record check – helps fight spam e-mails by checking whether an e-mail with a specific sender’s domain originates from servers verified by the sender to send e-mails.
  • DKIM record check – a method using encryption to reliably verify that an e-mail, including its contents, was sent from a domain.
