Alert: Fraudulent Material Ordering – 24/01/2019

Henry Boot Construction

Henry Boot Construction have been made aware that over recent weeks, a fraudster purporting to represent the company (in particular, posing as Simon Carr, Managing Director) has issued orders to a number of suppliers for materials (mostly for metal products). These orders have been issued by an email address ending “henry-boot.co.uk”, “henryboot-contruction.co.uk’ or ‘simoncarr@groupmail.com’. If you are in receipt of an order from any person claiming to be placing an order on behalf of Henry Boot Construction whose email does not end with “henryboot.co.uk”, this will be a fraudulent order which has not been placed on behalf of the company and should not be fulfilled. Please report any such instances to Action Fraud.
