Fraudulent Purchase Orders
Scam Fraudulent Purchase Orders
The Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) Procurement Department has obtained information regarding some vendors receiving fraudulent requests for quotes and the subsequent receipt of fraudulent purchase orders. Several schools are being affected and the FBI could be involved.
The emailed quote request impersonates purchasing authorities and the purchase orders resemble our official request directing items to be delivered to addresses that are not associated with NEOMED. While we cannot prevent this illegal activity, we ask that you take measures to protect yourself from this scam. All correspondence from NEOMED will come from the “@neomed.edu” domain. Should you receive what appears to be a suspicious request or order, please forward it to email@example.com. and we will verify the legitimacy of the request.
