This might be news to some but gee it's bad advice to most. You say "misled hundreds of Australian companies into thinking they were dealing with the Australian company Sensis Yellow Pages." This is the essence of the problem and anyone who thinks cash flows are going to be of much use better re do their thinking. In a staffed organisation unless run by a nearly one man band the odds of the person paying the amont and relating it to cash flow are miles apart. Even if you had the best system in the world what you are saying is that if the scammersa sent these emails out at the same time Sensis did, they would be likley to get paid. Not on. The best dilligence for staff is either to run it past the person who authorises that expenditure and if that person just signs off withopt an evaluation, maybe someone else shuold be doing it. People who are using the internet are going to have to become more prudent on payments and start thinking. Scammers beleive it or not prey on stupidity.
