It has been brought to our attention that there is an active email scam involving purchase orders and requests for product quotations that seem to originate from Wellesley College but are in fact fraudulent.  We are actively working with the law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent emails.  Please note that any emails from the college will end in @wellesley.edu and the college will never request shipment of products to a non-Wellesley College address.  If you believe you have received a fraudulent email that appears to be from Wellesley College, please forward it to the Purchasing Department to either cdolan@wellesley.edu or jcheng2@wellesley.edu to verify its legitimacy before responding to the email or filling the order.
