We have received reports of unauthorized individuals and organisations using the name and logo of QatarEnergy and its affiliates (collectively, “QatarEnergy”) in various correspondences, being circulated via e-mail and regular mail or fax, for fraudulent purposes.
These scams come in a variety of guises including offer letters and requests for proposals, invoices, and notices of change in bank account information, purportedly from QatarEnergy. These fake documents are crafted so that they are made to look like they originate from QatarEnergy. For example, they may contain our logo and name and a replica of QatarEnergy company seals, and use fake e-mail contact details and websites which contain the words “Qatar” and “energy”.
QatarEnergy has absolutely no involvement in these fraudulent practices. For your own protection, we recommend that you remain alert to, and aware of, these scam attempts. If you are unsure about the authenticity of a communication, please review the guidance below:
