Business Scams

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller maintains a site on office scams.  These scams may involve unordered goods, phony invoices or phone solicitations to buy office supplies (such as printer or copier toners).  If you receive a questionable solicitation, you may wish to consult the Office Scams link to see whether the solicitation is a common form of fraud.

Additionally, ISU's Purchasing department details common types of scams as well as questionable companies that may require special attention before placing any orders or responding to any invoices, correspondence or phone calls.
