Procurement fraud scheme targets University of Windsor suppliers

The Finance Department reports that suppliers to the University of Windsor have been experiencing an increasing number of attempts of fraudulent purchase order activity. These involve purchase orders and requests for quotes that appear to originate from the University of Windsor but are in fact fraudulent.

The Finance Department encourages all members of the campus community to be diligent about watching for signs of fraud. If a vendor that you work with contacts your department with a suspected fraud attempt, immediately notify the Procurement Office.
