Exhibitors are being targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with, event organisers. They use existing event branding and may appear genuine.
Organisations such as FairExpo are targeting exhibitors with their misleading directory services.
If you or your customers fall victim to this scam:
Our advice is to ignore them completely, and not communicate with them in any way. Writing letters simply confirms that you exist and are available at the address/email they have for you, and therefore payment can be pursued.
1) Report it to your local trading standards
2) Do not PAY anything
3) Do NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS even when they threaten legal action
