The City of El Paso is warning vendors about what appears to be new phishing scam targeting vendors and involving suspicious email and a fake website.

A vendor recently contacted City staff and indicated the company received a suspicious email that looked like it came from the City of El Paso. The email requested that the vendor update their vendor information online using a link within the email. The link directed them to a website that looked like the City’s website.

In response to this notification, the City has reached out to law enforcement to report the incident.

As a precaution, the Purchasing Department is contacting vendors registered with the City to inform them of this incident and to encourage them to reach out to the department should they have any concerns about requests for their vendor information.

City officials encourage vendors who may have received a similar suspicious email to contact the Purchasing Department via telephone at (915) 212-1189.
