SCAM ALERT - Beware of scam emails claiming to sell MIM data


SCAM ALERT – Beware of scam emails from & & selling ‘Made in the Midlands Attendee Details’

6th December 2017

Event sponsors, exhibitors, and members contact information gathered using a scraping method from the internet and social media have received emails from a company claiming to be in the possession of the Made in the Midlands attendee list (see below for example of one of their emails 2017). This sophisticated scam sounds genuine but is, in fact, a scam and you will not be receiving the Made in the Midlands attendee list but rather adding your own company details to a list of people susceptible to phishing attempts and funding criminal activity. Made in the Midlands does not sell its data and the attendee count information provided by the scammers does not match the real information.
