Scamming is a huge problem across the globe, with the total cost to the world of cybercrime estimated to rise to a staggering $10 trillion by 2025. It’s a fact that the scammers are getting smarter, more sophisticated and more aggressive.
Trade and consumer shows are not immune from this worrying trend and exhibitors at shows can represent an attractive target for scammers, who harvest data from public websites and directories and pretend to represent the organiser of the event, or companies associated with the event. We want you to enjoy your exhibition experience, to be alert and to protect yourself and your company from potential scams. In this short video, we will tell you about the type of scams you should look out for, what makes something look suspicious and what to do if you are a victim of scamming.
