Fraudulent e-mails target PCard users
To all purchasing cardholders, administrators and users:
You may recently have received e-mails from what appears to be JP Morgan Chase, with whom the University has contracted for the Purchasing “PCard” program.
These e-mails are NOT valid requests.
Should you receive a fraudulent e-mail from sources such as “Chase Manhattan Bank Security Department,” “JP Morgan Chase Co.” or even PayPal requesting credit card information, do NOT respond. The e-mail asks you to complete information that includes giving your PCard number.
JP Morgan Chase will never contact you via e-mail requesting card validation or to update records information. The only e-mail you will receive from JP Morgan Chase related to your PCard transactions will be from PaymentNet notifying you that a transaction has posted and is available for review. This e-mail comes from PaymentNet@JPMChase.com.
If you have responded to any such fraudulent e-mails, immediately call the 800 number on the back of your card, and also contact Anna Stewart, PCard administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to avoid any fraudulent charges that your card may be exposed to.
This information is also posted on the PaymentNet message board at www.paymentnet.com.
