    Well, here's a thought. Is the rate con a pdf? Is anybody else willing to compare notes with OP about the metadata that is in a proper TQL pdf and what's in OP's? It's no guarantee since you're likely to maybe get a company name, but maybe just a device that made the PDF. You'll also likely see the date and time the PDF was created.
    Check files for metadata info

    And if it's a picture of the rate con then ask for the original sent via email because they might not know how to edit them.

    I don't get load cons so I don't know how it goes. Do you screenshot/print the web page, get a text email that looks like this, download a pdf or get an emailed pdf? If it's a pdf would you mind running it through that website and showing what the Producer, Author, and Creator are?

    Hard to say with how blurry the OPs pic is. Definitely less space between the $ and 5 than the $ and 1. Being a large company I would expect TQLs to all look the same. I'm calling shenanigans.

    I ran a ratecon through the website, and then ran one I "forged" through to see if it would pick it up. It does, however the original does show a mod time of 12 minutes after the original I'm not sure if that was when I saved it from the email, or???? CEST confuses things a little as well, since they are 6 hours ahead of EST. It hit my inbox @ 3:33PM EST or 21:33 CEST so 21:42 would reflect my original save from the email. Copying it from folder to folder doesn't change it, but not sure about when you email. Not really a smoking gun that OP could use from what I can tell. Nothing beats being able to trust your company. Once that is broken, everything looks suspicious, even if it isn't.

    Simple way to "fix" metadata would be "print to pdf"

    Yeah., that would be just as effective as a screenshot. I doubt whatever scheming company/person is that forward thinking enough to cover tracks.
