Scam alert: Bozeman business scammed for $25,000 from a management (Waterford Management) company

July 13, 2017View for printing

As fraudsters grow more daring with schemes targeting businesses, Better Business Bureau warns business owners and purchasing agents to be on the lookout for fake purchase orders.

A recent scam targeting businesses and involving phony purchase orders has cheated business owners across the United States out of more than $950,000 in reported losses so far and now hits a local Bozeman cleaning supply store.

The business Waterford Management contacted the House of Clean in Bozeman looking for a large credit purchase of items like Downy and Bounce. It wasn't until they sent over $25,000 worth of product before they realized it was a scam. Now one employee hopes to warn other before making the same mistake.
