The University of Oklahoma Purchasing Department wishes to alert suppliers of recent activity involving scams that appear to be asking for price quotes or purchase orders on behalf of OU. We regret we are not able to prevent this illegal activity but will remain diligent in our efforts to report these scams to law enforcement to actively investigate this internet crime.

Please be aware of a few of the common signs of these fraudulent emails and be very suspicious of emails that include the following:

  • Poorly written emails with poor grammar and typographical errors.
  • Emails that request shipment or delivery to another address that appears to be off campus or to another state.
  • Examples of sender email addresses that are fraudulent: purchasing@ouedu.org; ou@gmail.com. These emails are not associated with the University.

If unsure, please contact the University of Oklahoma Purchasing Department directly at askpurchasing@ouhsc.edu or at (405) 325-2811.
