False Collection Claims

Please be advised that Graybar Electric Company, Inc. has recently become aware of several false collection claims that have been sent to law firms around the country.  The perpetrators identify themselves as members of companies with whom Graybar has allegedly done business.    
While the scam is constantly evolving, Graybar has seen the perpetrators use the names “Advanced Technologies” and/or Power Technology,” neither one of which are entities with whom Graybar has done business.   The correspondence typically: a) alleges that Graybar breached its contract with the fraudulent identity; b) includes a cashier’s check; and c) requests the law firm’s checking account routing number and other bank information.  Please be advised that this correspondence is fraudulent, and is simply an attempt to obtain the law firm’s checking account number.
