Stay Safe From Attendee Lists Email Spam — Internet 2.0 Conference
Recently, we got to know about an attendee list email scam, thanks to one of our past attendees. The spammy email was offering an attendee list in exchange for $199. As we had no idea about it, we asked the person to share the sender's details so that we could report them. But we wanted to confirm that nobody else gets tricked by these spam emails, so we are sharing the screenshot. Here’s what the email looked like.
Although it’s common with various tech conferences and events, we haven’t experienced it before. To ensure that it doesn’t happen again, we are on our way to let our prospects and attendees know that it is not what the Internet 2.0 Conference is involved in. We do not share sensitive information such as contact numbers. We encourage you to share any spam email with us that offers individuals’ data using our name and stature. It’s a frowned-upon practice, and we must take strict steps against them.
