Fake E-mail Warning.
Your Safety is Important to us!
At the moment, customers and suppliers are increasingly receiving fake e-mails from supposed KRAL e-mail addresses.
In the current case, the scammers send an e-mail in which questions are asked about open invoices and
Afterwards, the recipient receives an e-mail informing them that their bank details have changed.
Fortunately, due to the missing signature, the recipient became skeptical and the scam did not succeed.
Please be vigilant and rather ask if you are unsure.
Please note that our IBAN numbers always start with AT.
