***SDVOSB/VOSB Alert*** Bogus RFP Laptops, Phones and other Accessories
There is a bogus RFP/Quote request going around for laptops, phones and other accessories. The quote looks like it comes from the Department of Commerce/International Trade Administration (ITA). The phone number (see below) and return email are for a company that–from research–sells government grant services and loan services.
The email (including the DoC/ITA seal) looks very legit as does the attached quote. VOB has spoken with legit resources who clarified that the RFP IS INDEED BOGUS!!! The email does not go to trade(dot)gov address but instead trade-gov(dot)com. Here are the details:
Please find attached RFP and we would like to request a quote from your company.
Items needed are Laptops, Phones and other Accessories.
