SCAM ALERT!

The United States Embassy in Harare has received several reports that some vendors in Harare have been receiving tenders/requests for quotations purporting to be from the U.S. Embassy, in which they are asked to provide a price quote for ACSTER VX300 SOLAR GENERATOR, and to deliver part of the generators to the Embassy as samples, which will qualify them to be a regular supplier of 600 generators. The tenders are being sent to the vendors via email from the address usa@embassytenders.com using an official-looking RFQ form on fake Embassy letterhead complete with a fake Embassy seal.

Please Note: the U.S. Embassy in Harare does not send out tender notices from the above email address. The U.S. Government procurement follows strict regulations outlined in the U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). We encourage all vendors interested in bidding on legitimate opportunities to monitor our website or visit www.fbo.gov.
