New Mexico State University has learned that unknown persons are attempting to make fraudulent purchases acting as though they represent the university. Please know that legitimate contacts of the Procurement Services office:
- Will come from an email address in the domain “@nmsu.edu” or “@ad.nmsu.edu”. Email from an address like email@example.com is fraudulent.
- Will have phone numbers in area code 575 and exchange 646. Other numbers (such as 575-587-3153) are fraudulent.
- Will request delivery to a university facility, most of which are located in New Mexico and none of which are located in California.
