Fraudster alert 

It has come to our attention that fraudsters are actively impersonating our BAM brand by using our company logo, along with names from senior employees within our business to place orders with suppliers. We want to encourage our network to be extra vigilant when taking orders, which appear to be from our organisation to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of fraud.  

What to look out for

  • Order placement: fraudsters may place an order for goods (of various type) via telephone, text, WhatsApp and email. BAM does not place orders via text or WhatsApp.
  • Impersonation: fraudsters are known to have pretended to be from our procurement and accounts teams as well as impersonated our senior leaders.
  • Email correspondence: look carefully at the email domain, as scammers are known to use domains which contain the “BAM” name. Genuine emails from BAM will come from “” only.

Report it

We take matters of this nature very seriously and we are working hard to prevent such scams. If you think you may be subject to a fraud attempt, please contact our supply chain team to verify the authenticity of a credit account application or order.

If you want to report fraudulent behaviour or learn more about how to protect your business from it you can visit Action Fraud, UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime.
