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.
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.
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/.
