Cyber thieves target pizzeria customers in costly scam

By Mandy Wolf Detwiler


POS, system, cash register, transactionIf you own a pizzeria, you’ll want to read this story. A Richmond, Virginia-based pizzeria is speaking out after cyber thieves used the company’s name to send out phishing e-mails to unsuspecting consumers.

The e-mail tells the customer that he or she has made a charge to the pizzeria, and if it is not legitimate, to click a link for help. Instead of aid, the link downloads malware to the computer, which can give another user access to that machine.

If your pizzeria’s name has been used in such a scam, be sure to alert your customers in-store not to click any links in emails such as these. While there’s no easy way to protect your business from being targeted, protecting your customers is the No. 1 goal.
