Notice to suppliers
Fraudulent purchase orders
The University of Akron's Purchasing Department alerts the community to a nationwide fraud scam that is targeting suppliers for colleges across the country. Please take precautions so that you are not a victim of this scam.
The email scam involves purchase orders and requests for product quotations that purport to originate from the University, but are in fact fraudulent. The FBI could be involved.
