ANGLO AMERICAN SCAMS WARNINGS
ANGLO AMERICAN PLATINUM LIMITED – SUPPLIER SCAM WARNING
17 NOV 2016
Anglo American Platinum wishes to alert suppliers of a scam in which fraudsters pretending to represent Anglo American Platinum, or one of its operations, attempt to secure industrial products via a fraudulent Request for Quotations (RFQ). The fraud is typically conducted through an email, which appears to come from Anglo American Platinum, confirming a false order and noting that payment will be made once the products are delivered and inspected, following which the scammers intercept and steal the order.
The company has received increased reports of such fraudulent activity and is partnering with authorities, including the South African Police Service and The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, to investigate.
If you suspect to have received a fraudulent RFQ, please e-mail Vicky Mollett on: Vicky.firstname.lastname@example.org.
ANGLO AMERICAN PLATINUM LIMITED – RECRUITMENT SCAM WARNING
HELP US BEAT RECRUITMENT FRAUD
We wanted to let you know about recent ‘phishing’ scams in which fraudsters try to extract personal information or money by pretending to be Anglo American. They might be making false job offers, asking for money to participate in a recruitment process, or running a fake jobs lottery.
How to spot a fraudulent email…
The email may look convincing. But, you’ll know it’s fraudulent if:
It’s asking for money. We’d never do this.
It’s asking for bank details before we’ve made you a job offer. We don’t do this either.
The email address is different to this format: email@example.com
It’s out of the blue: we only offer jobs following a formal application and selection process, including face-to-face interviews.
Don’t respond to an email you think might be fraudulent.
If you receive a suspicious email, or want to find out more, you can help us by getting in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
