Watch out for fraudulent e-mails from Saudi Arabia

In recent weeks, several Swiss companies have been contacted by a public procurement authority from Saudi Arabia. Various deliveries were requested from the companies. However, the “Saudi Arabia Public Procurement Commission” is a deception.

In Saudi Arabia, there is neither an authority named “Saudi Arabia Public Procurement Commission” nor is there any company that is responsible for state procurement. The website sappcom-gov.org is fake. “If Swiss SMEs receive an e-mail from SAPPCOM, you must be aware that the offer is fraudulent,” warns Larbi Elattari of the Swiss Business Hub Middle East in Saudi Arabia.
The website of the “Ministry of Municipalities and Rural Affairs” is www.momra.gov.sa
