Fraudulent Requests of Anixter Customers to Send Payments to an Unauthorized Bank

Anixter customers are receiving emails that have the appearance of being sent from Anixter Middle East FZE with requests to divert payments for Anixter to a non-Anixter bank account located in Raiffeisenbank A.S. in Czech Republic. This is a fraudulent attempt to steal Anixter customers' money. Anixter Middle East FZE has never had a bank account with any bank in Czech Republic. Anixter has formally contacted the Raiffeisenbank Bank advising them of the fraudulent activity.
