For Suppliers:

Ohio University wants to alert you to an active email scam involving purchase orders and requests for product quotations that purport to originate from Ohio University but are in fact, fraudulent. While the university cannot prevent this illegal activity, we are actively working with law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent email contacts. Please review "How to Do Business with Ohio University". It is always a best practice to insist on a valid Purchase Order from your customer prior to shipping any product. For additional information, please click here and here.
