Spot a Request For Quotation/Purchase Order Scam Easy!
The scammers modus operandi: The fraudulent requests for quotations (“RFQ”) are sent via email to SMEs requesting them to send quotations or to deliver goods. After the submission of a quote by a supplier, communication is then sent to such a supplier, that the quote has been accepted and delivery may take place or goods will be collected from the premises of the supplier.
Pay attention to the email address from which the request for quotation comes from, let me make a real example. An SME recently contacted MarketDirect Purchase Order Fundingservice seeking funding for a purchase order “awarded” by Steve Biko Academic Hospital, we simply saw very easily that it a scam by looking at the email address where it is coming, in this case the email address looked this way.
STEP 1: Copy and to your internet browser the part after the “@” sign, you lend at government website if not it is scam.
STEP 2: We copied and pasted “doh-govza.org” onto our internet browser and have a look below where that took us:
This website shown above clearly is not of government but it is where the scam artists registered their website, “doh-govza.org“, and is not like any of the real department of health website which usually end with “.gov.za” for instance “health.go.za“.
There you have it! A simple test to see if the Request For Quotation (RFQ) or Purchase Order(PO) you receive via email is scam or real, simply take the part after “@” symbol of an email address the RFQ is coming from and put it on your internet web browser it should lead you to a real government website!
Over the past four years a number of companies have lost tens of thousands of Rands due to alleged fraudulent request for quotations (RFQS) and orders, supposedly from government departments.
The fraudsters would send a fictitious RFQ from what would seem to be a governmental email address, use a fake RFQ form with a logo and contact details of the contact person. These requests are usually “urgent” and the whole process is concluded within a short period of time. During the process the “SCM officials” will be in contact with the unsuspecting service provider until the goods are delivered either outside the building or at an agreed address.
Companies are therefore advised to verify all the RFQs and orders by calling the respective departments using the Departmental contact details listed on their respective websites to verify authenticity prior to responding to any RFQs or orders to avoid falling prey to these fraudsters.
