How to spot a fraudulent email and purchasing related documentation
The email and documentation may look convincing. But, you will know it is fraudulent if:
The email address is different to this format: email@example.com
It is asking for upfront deposits, security deposits or fees for accessing tender documentation. We would never do this.
It is asking for your bank details. Remember that as a supplier, we capture and verify your banking details during your registration phase - we will not ask you for this on an RFQ.
It is asking for samples upfront.
It is out of the blue: you receive a quotation request even if you did not do any work with Anglo American in the past. Our normal process is to contact prospective suppliers to let them know about an opportunity and typically conduct a site briefing to discuss our requirements.
