Regarding fake emails from ROCA Industry

In the last few days, obviously fraudulent emails have been sent to customers and business contacts in the name of ROCA Industry. Please do not answer these emails and do not follow the instructions of the "sender".
The emails are written in English, the exact wording can be found below following this text.

Insidiously, the scammer(s) used an email alias from our employee as the sender address (andrea.dirscherl@rocaindustry.de). Ms. Dirscherl's "correct" domain email address is @rocaindustry.com though, and admittedly this difference is difficult to tell.

In another email (scam email 2) the email comes from ROCA Industry AB <accs.r@rocaindustry.com> and the person "Laura E. Kirven" (who does not work for us and is unknown to us).

We do not know who is behind these emails with the subject "Open Invoices", but we can assure you that we have no intention of switching our accounts and that there are no outstanding invoices with the invoice number(s) given.

If we were to make such important changes, we would notify you through means other than a relatively simple email.

We thank you for your understanding!
