Fraud Alert

The State of Alaska has been made aware of a new phishing scam that targets the community of vendors doing business with the State. It attempts to lure vendors into taking certain actions, including visiting a fraudulent website to input personal information and/or to download malicious programs. The fraudulent solicitations were received originating from an individual email address with the correct alaska.gov email domain; however, the sender is listed as " State of Alaska Contract Division," rather than the employee’s last and first name, as is standard for individual alaska.gov email accounts.

If you have received an email with any of these criteria, you should be aware that it did not originate from the State of Alaska. Do not reply to the email.  You should delete the message immediately.  Do not open attachments, click links contained in the email, or provide any data to the websites mentioned or linked.  Refrain from remitting payment to bank account information provided.  All information provided on this matter is being forwarded to the appropriate authorities. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions, please contact the State Security Office at (907)269-5000.
