Atos Group has been informed of fraud and scam attempts that use various methods to impersonate the company.
In some of these scams, fraudsters attempt to open customer accounts with suppliers and service providers or place orders by posing as an Atos entity, especially by using email addresses such as “atos-belgie.net” or “atos-be.eu”, fake wire transfer orders, and websites (such as “www.atos-be.eu” or other illegal websites mentioning the name Atos) that redirect to the official Atos Group website in a technique known as framing. The emails feature Atos’ legal name, trade mark and logo, in an attempt making them seem like the genuine emails sent by Atos.
If you have been contacted in the past or if you are contacted by email (from addresses using fraudulent domain name similar to the above mentioned ones), by telephone or even through direct canvassing by individuals wishing to order equipment, products or services, open a customer account in the name of Atos Group (or one of its subsidiaries) or modify your bank account information, please contact us immediately by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
