We are aware of emails being sent from email addresses that look like Arista Networks email addresses, sometimes using the names of real Arista employees to attempt to place fraudulent orders with potential vendors of components or other essential parts of the manufacturing supply chain. These emails can contain bogus purchase orders or invoices or other solicitations for contact to do business or to “remedy” some aspect of a supposed transaction. They may answer at phone numbers listed in the PO to further their scheme.
For example, we have seen email addresses such as “<name>@arista-inc.com”, “<name>이 이메일 주소가 스팸봇으로부터 보호됩니다. 확인하려면 자바스크립트 활성화가 필요합니다.”, "<name>@aristta.com", "<name>@arislta.com" and "<name>@aristsa.com" used. We have also seen real employee names used– likely taken from Company Bios or LinkedIn profiles. Any communications not from <name>@arista.com are fraudulent and should not be responded to.
If you suspect you may be a target of such a scheme, please note:
- Arista emails end with @arista.com; we will not send emails from another domain.
- Arista will never seek shipment to a PO Box, a residential address, a shipping/logistics company or freight forwarder, or public storage facility.
- Use Arista’s Contact Us page to verify with Arista; DO NOT simply call the number on the supposed PO.
Please contact Arista at 이 이메일 주소가 스팸봇으로부터 보호됩니다. 확인하려면 자바스크립트 활성화가 필요합니다. if you think you may be a victim of this fraud scheme. Arista can help validate that a fraudulent transaction has occurred and identify information that may be of use to law enforcement in their investigation.
If you have already determined you are a victim of this fraud scheme and the fraud is in the United States or one of its territories, we also recommend reporting the case to the FBI at the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) website: https://www.ic3.gov/.
