Fraud and Scam Important Warning Message

It has come to our attention that a person falsely claiming to work with Douglas Steel Supply has recently circulated unsolicited and misleading messages via the internet. These fraudulent emails, which attempt to appear legitimate by claiming an association with DOUGLAS STEEL SUPPLY, offer payment for assisting in the transfer of funds to DOUGLAS STEEL SUPPLY from our customers.

Please be advised that any messages from any person asking for assistance in the transfer of funds on behalf of DOUGLAS STEEL SUPPLY should be ignored. All communications from DOUGLAS STEEL SUPPLY will originate from a verifiable DOUGLAS STEEL SUPPLY email address, and not from internet-based email accounts, such as hotmail or yahoo.

In this regard, we would appreciate it if you could pay careful attention to suspicious or false messages claiming to be sent on our behalf.

How to protect yourself
  • Do not respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or job offers from people or e-mail addresses you do not know and trust.
  • Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust or on a website you do not trust. Should you have disclosed this information to somebody you do not know or trust or to a website you do not trust, consider reporting the incident to your local law enforcement.
  • Be on the lookout for suspicious signs – e.g. check for misspelled words, persons based outside the United States, communications from non-DOUGLAS STEEL SUPPLY e-mail addresses (e.g. from a hotmail.com address); requests for money, or assistance in transferring money.
