Xero security notice

Fake Xero billing notification

We’ve had reports of people receiving fake Xero Billing Notification emails.

The email subject this time is ‘YOUR XERO INVOICE REVIEW’ and is being sent from the email address ‘rachel@cbacfc.org’. The invoice numbers used may vary in an attempt to make the invoice more convincing.

Please be aware that this is not a sending address nor a domain used by Xero, and these emails were not sent by us.

Here is an example of the email:

Phishing-19-11-800x287

If you have received this email, you should report it as phishing and delete it. Do not click on the link to view your bill. The link in this phishing email will redirect you to a malicious website.

If you’re an existing Xero user, we recommend enabling Two-Step Authentication (2SA) as another layer of protection for your account. You can find out more about 2SA here.
