Fraud Alert! We have received reports of fraudulent purchase orders being placed that appear to be connected to UNC. If you are a vendor or campus unit and need to validate whether or not a purchase order is a legitimate one from UNC, contact purchasing_team@unc.edu. Please do not assume an error or ignore it. If you are a vendor and suspect you are the victim of a fraud attempt, contact your local authorities to file a police report. We appreciate your diligence in this matter.
