PRIVATE STRUCTURE has recently learned of an unauthorised trademark usage and email scam involving persons posing as company officers, or falsely claiming to represent the company or company group affiliates, while soliciting customers and business partners on behalf of the company.
The company, its group affiliates and officers have absolutely no involvement with these fraudulent practices and do not make such solicitations.
Please be aware of this scam, and if you receive email solicitations from anyone posing as the company, its group affiliates or company officers that appears even remotely suspicious, contact us immediately.
Do not respond to these emails or communicate with the sender, and do not provide the sender with any personal or financial information. Also, avoid clicking on links included in the emails, or the attachments, as doing so may result in malware or a virus being loaded on the recipient’s computer. We urge you to be suspicious of unsolicited emails, phone calls and texts that ask for personal or financial information.
Examples of solicitation, posing and fraudulent practices are as follow.
