1) received an unsolicited fax from 561-300-8931. the fax said to opt out by sending a return fax to that #, or calling the 877 741 9402 #. i called to opt out. a recording answered saying " you have reached the nat'l fax removal center..." google search finds little on that name. so i don't know if i just ADDED my fax to a call list or whether they will remove it like they claim? we'll see...
2) the fax sent said "to learn more go to PurchaseOrderNotifications.us". i googled that and there is nothing about it on google. (so probably all a phishing scam. i wish i had not opted out now.)
there is an address on the fax, which i googled and it came up w/ this company:
700 West Hillsboro Blvd.
Deerfield Beach, FL 33441
(this phone # will not accept calls w/ called ID blocked?! why not?! hmmmm?...)
3) at the site an online agent asks if you have questions. i typed, "what's your fax #?"... waiting... 15 min later...
what is your fax #?

James (after a long pause)
I don't think so
then james went offline = he hung up on our chat.
FYI = the company written about on marketwatch.com is described as; a Florida-based company that improves procurement intelligence through information sharing, connects thousands of local, state and federal agencies to government contractors to determine market opportunities, product trends, and competitive intelligence.
BOTTOM LINE = i doubt this is a bad company or scammer but they are hoping to sell you information and/or collecting your information to sell.
This appears scam
What they are attempting to do is unknown
We are staying away from 561-300-8931 and the assocaiated number at bottom of fax 877-741-9402
They are claiming in body of fax our competitors requested access to our purchase orders from THEIR DATABASE of US government purchase order information.
They also list PurchaseOrderNotifications.us several times.
Avoid that address too!
Received unsolicited fax from 561-300-8931
PurchaseOrderNotification.us website not available on Google Search
Wording, logo, and contact information on the fax is suspect and unprofessional.
Attempt to frighten receiver into giving information to avoid a threat to business.
yeah, our company received this as well. Unfortunately, the information concerning awards of federal contracts is public information published in a number government, web-based databases. Companies like "Office of Purchase Order Notifications" (whatever that is supposed to be) troll these public sources in an effort to acquire leads to sell their "information." The fax they sent us says that one of our "biggest competitors requested access to" our purchase orders from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Well, whoop dee doo for them. Our biggest competitors are actually entitled to that information under the Freedom of Information Act if they request it, so go for it. Knock yourself out.
same junk only a different number:
Office of Purchase Order Notifications
700 W. Hillsboro Blvd.
Deerfield Beach, FL 33441
ATTN: VP of Government Sales
Notice: One of your biggest competitors requested access to your
purchase orders from our database of government purchase information.Specifically, they sought line-item pricing detail for every purchase order over the last 5 years for anything sold to:
The review of these agencies by your competitors are an indication that they intend to go after your current and potential customers and they are using your purchase order data to gain a competitive advantage. We wanted to make you aware of this competitor activity. If you would like to know how your competitors are accessing this data, as well as how you can gain access to the same information about their purchase order history, simply go to the web address you see below.

The recipient is entitled to request that the sender not send any future unsolicited advertlsements to its telephone facsimile machlne.
Failure to comply within 30 days from the date the request is properly made is unlawful. 877-741-9402 is the telephone number and
561·300·8931 is the fax number for the recipient to transfer such opt-out request.
We also received this same fax today, 9/10/2013. Caller ID picked up the caller's name as NETPROCO and the actual number sending the fax as 720-358-6042; this name and number are NOT listed anywhere on the faxed document. We will NOT be responding in any way.
Our company received this as well. It was the same address (Deerfield Beach, FL and same number to call, 877 741 9402. We are not going to do anything but it is disconcerting they have some of our companies listed.
Received the initial part of a fax sent by Office of Purchase Order Notifications-700 W.Hillsboro Blvd. Suite 4-100-Deerfield Beach, FL 33441 Fax sent from: 561-300-8931
I interrupted the fax, so I only received the first lines of the message with a very unprofessional logo, with an eagle, probably for making believe that this is a fax from a government agency. But do they forget that the govt is closed?
The sender tried to send the fax again and I interrupted it once more. This smells scam.
Thanks for the information posted on this page.
I received the fax and actually visited the website listed on the fax. (PONotifications.us) It redirects me to a website called SmartProcure.us and they "look" legitimate. I'm not sure what game they are playing but they say I can find out what our customers are buying and help me find new government buyers? The federal government is closed, so I'm not sure how that will help us unless they're talking about cities and states becoming our customers too? Still, this seems fishy. It will probably be one of those things that will become popular with agencies looking to save money, but I don't like technology like this. It's almost as invasive people using my smartphone usage data to sell me stuff.
