Notice to Vendors: Fraudulent Purchase Order Email Activity
We want to alert you to an email scam involving fraudulent purchase orders and requests for product quotations purporting to originate from UC Santa Cruz, but are in fact fraudulent. While the university cannot prevent this illegal action, we are actively working to inform our suppliers of this on-going activity. Common features of these supplier-targeted counterfeit UCSC orders include:
  • The email message is poorly written, with misspellings and awkward sentence structure.
  • Orders start with an e-mail inquiry asking for a quote for a small order followed by a subsequent request for a larger order.
  • The order designates a Ship To address that is not a UCSC facility or indicates the product will be picked up at the supplier’s premises.
  • Invalid contact information, such as email addresses using deceptive extensions; e.g. @ucsantascruz.com or @ucsc.mygbiz.com.
  • The message may include an attachment that is designed to look like a purchase order, and may include a logo or other graphic, or a signature.
  • Please note that the university’s internet address is www.ucsc.edu and it is not our practice to ask our suppliers to ship to addresses that are not UCSC campus facilities. It is also not our practice to place orders for merchandise that will be picked up at supplier premises.

If you believe you have received a fraudulent order or quotation request you may forward it to UCSC Procurement Services at buy4me@ucsc.edu to verify the communication’s legitimacy before responding. You may also contact the Procurement Services department by telephone at: 831-459-2311.
