Emails Offering to Sell ASTMH Data are Scams

The Society Does Not Sell, Rent or Lease Emails to Third Parties

 

 

We know you have been receiving emails offering to sell "the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Annual Meeting Attendees databank." This is a scam. The Society does not sell, rent or lease to third parties the emails of our members, Annual Meeting attendees or anyone else with whom we conduct business.

 

 

Don’t patronize these scammers. If you reply, they know they have a potential victim and if you attempt to buy any of these lists or book a hotel room through them, they will have your credit card number, which is their goal. Emails offering to sell ASTMH registration lists, hotel rooms and meeting registrations have been out there for several years but we’ve seen an escalation in volume and sophistication in the last five years. Other professional societies are seeing these scams sent to their members as well. Please continue to be vigilant.
