    Please be aware that we will never contact a supplier or prospective supplier via SMS or social media to invite them to tender, nor do we use agents or charge a fee for vendor registration or tendering.

    Fraudsters send correspondence to clients indicating that VKB’s banking details have changed and that money needs to be paid into the new bank account.

    Our banking details have not changed.
