Notice to Suppliers

Fraudulent Purchase Order Activity

We want to alert you to an active scam involving purchase orders and requests for product quotations that purport to originate from The University of North Florida but are in fact fraudulent.  We can share some common traits or themes of these fraudulent emails that may help reduce the risk to your company in becoming a financial victim of this scam:

  • The email message is poorly written, with misspellings and awkward sentence structure.
  • The sender's email address or website link is not authentic to The University of North Florida.
  • The message requests the shipment of products to a non-University of North Florida address.
  • The message may include an attachment that is designed to look like a purchase order, may include a logo or other graphic, and a signature that may look legitimate.

If you believe you have received a fraudulent email, purchase order, or request for a quote that appears to be from The University of North Florida and would like to verify its legitimacy before responding and/or filling the order. you can contact Procurement Services by phone, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. (EST) at (904) 620-2730.
