Attendee List Sales Scam Warning
Beware of Fraudulent Attendee List Sales Scam
It has come to ICRA 2022 attention that "companies" are contacting meeting attendees to offer them sale of the ICRA 2022 attendee mailing list. This, unfortunately, is a common occurrence with large industry conferences and trade shows in recent years.
ICRA 2022 does not sell its meeting registration lists nor authorize any third party to distribute or sell meeting attendee lists or lists related to the event.
How did they get your email address? Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the “@” sign).
ICRA 2022 cannot be held responsible for any interaction or sale with these fraudulent company(s). (insert conference name) takes this matter very seriously and will do whatever possible to protect attendees, partners, and exhibitors.
If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of event attendees, do not respond to it. By responding, even with a request to unsubscribe, you confirm that your email address is a valid one. This may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again.
