Purchase Order Fraud Alert

Please note that some UT Southwestern vendors are being subject to fraudulent P.O. requests. Unfortunately, this has become an extremely common fraud - utilizing University 'Procurement' Departments to order large quantities of items from unsuspecting U.S. Companies and have the items shipped to several places, prior to being picked-up or sent to their final designation.

More information is available in this Alert notice.
