It has come to our attention that some New York State Contract System users have received emails claiming to be sent directly from Empire State Development (“ESD”) or the Division of Minority and Women’s Business Development (“DMWBD”). One such email stated that “[a] secure verification link below will expire after 24 hours, and if we did not receive your verification / update before the link expire, we will have to revoke your license.” Be advised that neither ESD nor DMWBD sent that email.

That email and similar ones are cyber-attacks known as “phishing.” Phishing emails are messages designed to trick you into visiting malicious sites or downloading malware used to steal data and damage networks. Be cautious and note that emails from ESD and the DMWBD will include an email address of @esd.ny.gov or @newnycontracts.com. DMWBD will never request any information such as your passwords or credit card information via email or request users to update their accounts with a deadline of 24 hours or less. Additionally, DMWBD does not refer to your certification as a license.

If you suspect that you have receive a suspicious email from DMWBD, please delete the email. If you have clicked on any links or provided any account information, call our Customer Care at (212) 803-2414 for any assistance you may require. Our helpful representatives are here to assist you. To offer further protection for its users, the NYSCS offers two-factor authentication for its users.
