 Fraud Alert

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 fictious 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 space of time. During this 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 webistes to verify authenticity prior to responding to any RFQs or orders to avoid falling prey to these fraudsters
The Department of Planning, Montoring and Evaluation would like to warn the prospective suppliers / bidders about an alarming scam which is currently circulating which seeks to request suppliers to submit quotations to the Department or charge a non-refundable fee for supplier registration forms, quotations or tender documents. The DPME does not charge any fees for supplier database registration forms, quotations or tender documentation; therefore all prospective suppliers / bidders are cautioned to contact the DPME when they suspect any scam​ as well as whem fictitious purchase orders placed for goods or services and DPME's name is being used.
The below documents are fraudulent:
