Please be aware, that ESTIV and many other EU-based societies are again facing the incased activity of scams and fraudulent e-mails requesting bank transfers to various accounts. The e-mails are drafted by skilled scammers, who get their information via social networks.
They use tricks to convince you that these emails are on behalf of the CEO, CFO or secretary – these requests usually look as if they are coming from familiar e-mail addresses. They may attach fake invoices or communications. Be careful, and please report us any suspicious e-mails, that you may receive.
Other companies may offer you member’s /congerence lists – these requests and offeres never come by ESTIV.
Please be carefull and do not communicate with these individuals.
