Attention All Vendors:
Palm Beach County has fully converted to an on-line Vendor Self Service (VSS) System. The official and only website for advertisement of all Palm Beach County solicitations can be found by clicking on the links referred to below. All other information will remain on this website.
Palm Beach County's Purchasing Department has identified a scam in which bid requests and fraudulent purchase orders are being sent to vendors, which appear to come from Palm Beach County.
Scammers are utilizing look-a-like email addresses to make it appear that pricing is being requested from Palm Beach County. The scammers then issue a fraudulent purchase order that appears to come from Palm Beach County and request that the items be shipped to a location not associated with Palm Beach County.
The scammers appear to be targeting companies that sell computer equipment and audio-visual type equipment.
Please carefully review e-mail bid requests and purchase orders received from Palm Beach County and be aware that the only official Palm Beach County email extension is ....... @pbcgov.org.
The scammers have created an email address that reflects …. @pbcgovs.org
To confirm their authenticity, you should contact the issuer on the Purchase Order, but only by using an e-mail address with the e-mail extension @pbcgov.org.
