A company who may have contracted with U.S. DOT receives a request for “financial information release form” in order to be eligible for procurement with the U.S. DOT, with banking info and owner/officer’s signature. The request specifies that the info must be returned with a fax cover sheet so they “may correctly identify your company.” They then use the company’s own cover sheet and bank info to fax a request for a LARGE wire transfer from the business’s bank account to a bank account in Moscow, with the request pasted over the owner’s signature that was provided on the info request.
Attempted amount: $33000.00. I demand Scam was caught by local bank officer before transfer occurred – just a warning for other federal contractors.. Stay away
