Procurement swindle in the post

Mailboxes in the US are apparently getting letters claiming the recipient is a prospective contractor but implying that any business can’t go ahead until financial information – that is bank name and account number - is submitted. Sound familiar? During tough economic times, it seems con artists are turning to procurement as a way to swindle money from businesses.
