Notice: Malicious Email Scam

We recently learned of a malicious email using Wolseley Industrial Group’s name and likeness. The email is from a factitious purchasing agent named Helen Costanzo sending a Purchasing Order (PO). If you receive this email, immediately delete it. Do not open the attachments as they may contain a virus.

The fraudulent email:

  • May be poorly written, with misspellings and awkward sentence structure
  • From a non-authentic Wolseley Industrial Group email address
  • Requests shipment of products to a non-Wolseley Industrial Group address
  • May include an attachment that is designed to look like a purchase order, may include a logo or other graphic, and a signature that may look legitimate

If you believe you have received a fraudulent email, please immediately forward to security.department@ferguson.com.
