Beware of fake solicitations in emails

Scam Alert: Malicious e-mail spoofs being sent to vendors

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is reporting that a fake solicitation is being sent to vendors in the form of a Request for Quotation (RFQ).

The fake email solicitation, purporting to be from DLA, has been targeting GSA STARS II vendors.

The emails are not from DLA.mil.  Instead, they are coming from a “Reply-To” address ending in @dla-mil.us, which is not a government address.

Always remain cautious of emails that arrive in your inbox that are not explicitly addressed to you.  Sometimes scammers attempt to hide their actions by addressing their targets in the “bcc” line.

Bottom line: Vendors should always remain vigilant about suspicious emails, and be cautious about opening email attachments.
