These attempts consist of an email apparently sent by University of Toronto personnel, asking for a quote on certain goods and materials and urges expedited delivery to a location not affiliated with the University.  The email address from which the message is sent is not a valid University of Toronto email address, and the phone number provided isnot a valid University of Toronto phone number.

DO NOT RESPOND TO THESE REQUESTS.

The University is actively working with Authorities, and we are asking our community members and suppliers to be vigilant, and report any suspected fraudulent activity in relation to the above to purchasing.help@utoronto.ca.

Any related updates received from Authorities will be posted on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.
