Warning for Exhibitors – Unofficial Contractors
If you fall victim to this fraud:
The AEO advise 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 address/number they have for you, and therefore payment can be pursued.
千亿体育官网1) Report it to your local trading standards
千亿体育官网2) DO NOT PAY ANYTHING
千亿体育官网3) DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS even when they threaten legal action
千亿体育官网4) Optional: Complain to the receiving bank that their client Expo Guide (or equivalent), is obtaining money by deception.
These organisations have also been known to use debt recovery agencies, the same advice stands for these agencies.
If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of suppliers who get in touch with you, please feel free to contact us anytime.
