A risk of responding is that the response confirms the validity of an address, and the phishing can proceed apace, as well as the now confirmed contact data sold to others of this ilk.From the original post, I inferred that the invoice was received through snail mail from a company that the OP had done business with before. In that case, I think that there is little concern that this would be a phishing attempt.Even if the invoice was received through e-mail, if the response is sent via snail mail to an address that can be verified elsewhere as belonging to that company, I think there would be little concern about actually confirming a phishing attempt. In fact, it could alert the company that phishing attempts are being made in their name, so they can try to combat the issue.AJ
