We have recently received reports that attendees and exhibiting companies have been contacted by third party companies for a number of reasons including hotel reservations, selling attendee lists and scam exhibition services.
Scammers offering to sell these lists often aggregate information based on web crawler or email “scraper” programs on various websites (including LinkedIn and Facebook). While this is illegal in most countries, it does not prevent scammers from doing so.
