CITY IS WARNING BUSINESSES OF PURCHASE ORDER SCAM REGARDING LOCAL GOVERNMENT PURCHASE ORDERS

Scam Alert

Scammers are utilizing look-a-like email addresses to make it appear that pricing is being requested from local governments and even federal government agencies. The scammers then issue a fraudulent purchase order that appears to come from a government agency; however, the purchase order requests that the items be shipped to a location not associated with the government agency.

The scammers appear to be targeting companies that sell computer equipment and audio-visual type equipment. Fraudulent purchase orders are issued for quantities much larger than a government agency would normally purchase.

Businesses should carefully review purchase orders received from government agencies and confirm their authenticity, especially if the quantities ordered are significant and if the requested delivery address differs from the normal delivery address.

Any business that wants to validate that they have received an official City of Pueblo Purchase Order should contact our Purchasing Department at purchasing@pueblo.us or by calling 719-553-2350. We urge everyone to do their due diligence and not fall victim to these scammers.
