Fraudulent ticket sales
Phishing attempts: Attendee list scam emails
Some delegates and speakers have been approached with an offer to purchase a full list of our ORFC delegates and their contact details. Sadly this is now a common occurrence for large conferences and trade events. If you receive an email like this, please report it to Action Fraud and let us know on email@example.com. Please do not respond or try to unsubscribe as they are phishing for active email addresses. If you do respond this will normally lead to more unwanted emails. We protect the information about the people and organisations we work with and would never share data with marketing companies.
Scam emails might look like the following examples:
How to combat fraud
While we take this matter very seriously and will do whatever possible to protect our attendees, partners, sponsors and exhibitors, ORFC cannot be held responsible for any interaction or sale with fraudulent companies.
If you have received a fraudulent email or become aware of fraudulent ticket sales, please contact the ORFC team on firstname.lastname@example.org and include “URGENT – Fraud” at the beginning of the subject line. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
