Attendee List Scams

It has come to our attention that IANA members have been receiving e-mails stating they may purchase the Intermodal EXPO’s attendee list. These emails are not coming from IANA nor are the companies emailing associated with IANA. They are scams. 

IANA has been sending cease and desist orders but as soon as one goes out, another email solicitation (under a different name) appears.  This is an ongoing issue faced by meeting organizers worldwide. We encourage you to respond to these solicitations with a demand that you and your company be taken off their e-mail list immediately. If the e-mails continue, the Federal Trade Commission advises that you forward unwanted or deceptive messages to the Federal Trade Commission at spam@uce.gov and file a complaint with the FTC here.

You can also send the spam emails to your e-mail provider. At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed. Some e-mail services have buttons that allow you to mark messages as junk mail or report them spam.  If you can determine the sender's e-mail provider, you can report the spam to them as well. Most web mail providers and ISPs want to cut off spammers who abuse their system. Make sure to include the entire spam e-mail and say that you're complaining about spam.
