Scaffolders warned regarding scam customers
A warning has been issued after claims were made by scaffolding suppliers who are being targeted by suspected fraudulent customers.
While it is unclear whether the spoofing scam was successful, the company involved has reported that individuals have been contacting the firm claiming to be a customer from ‘bonafide’ businesses.
The individuals were spoofing the landline phone numbers of the companies to make them look like legitimate customers. They would place large value orders for scaffold materials and quote postcodes for delivery with the caller always asking for any return calls or queries to be directed to a mobile number.
Scaffold trade body the NASC has sent out emails urging its UK supplier members to be vigilant of the scam.
