Scam Alert

Procurement Services is the target of a scam for the purchase of large quantities of materials (toner, thumb drives, acrylic plastic, adhesives, batteries, and more).

Here is an example of how the scam works:

A scammer sends an email request or submits a website form to purchase goods using the name Greg Smith, Grant Polzer, or Chris Dale (more are beginning to be used).

The request will include an email address similar to "purchasing@colostate-edu.com", although different email addresses are seen frequently. The domain for Colorado State University is colostate.edu so if it differs in any way the message did not come from someone associated with the University.

Many different area codes are being used in the requests. The area code for the Procurement Services office is 970, however, this has been used as well in requests.

CSU Police were notified when the first incident was brought to our attention.

Do not respond, provide any information or fill any order. Remember, if it looks suspicious it probably is a scam.

If you receive a scam call or email similar as described above, please report it to Procurement Services. We would appreciate any email messages received being forwarded to report_scam@colostate.edu in order to add them to our files.

Please share this information with others in your company that should be alerted to this scam.
