Fraud Alert

We want to alert you to an active purchasing-related scam purporting to originate from the Texas Association of School Boards, Inc. (TASB), but is in fact fraudulent.

The fraudsters are impersonating TASB in general by issuing bogus purchase orders and other purchasing-related documents to legitimate vendors and directing that the bill be sent to TASB’s address, yet having the goods shipped to a different location.

We encourage you to be diligent and confirm directly with TASB’s Finance Department regarding any suspicious calls or emails attempting to place a purchase order in TASB’s or a TASB employee’s name, particularly in the name of Steven McArthur.

Please contact Chris Knauf (, 512.467.0222 x 2876) or Laurie Terry (, 512.467.0222 x 3621) should you encounter this issue.
