Current fraudulent e-mail schemes

 

To report fraudulent e-mails, or if you have any questions relating to fraudulent e-mails, please contact information.security@iata.org

 

July 2015 alert:

 

IATA Award Prize

jim.neofotistos@oracle.com issued a letter (pdf) as "World Aviation Promo" to announce that contacts won 1 Mio. USD and they are asked to contact yeo.chin@asia.com. Similar letters (pdf) have been issued by erin.danahy@oracle.com and tony.tyler@aviationpromo.com including a reference to yeo.hoychin@aviationpromo.com or yeoh.chin@aviationpromo.com. Please do not respond to this communication.

 

Update on IATA charges

zitkovam@iatae.org sends emails (pdf) with the header "update on IATA charges" requesting to provide proof of payment details. Please do not respond to this email.

 

June 2015 alert:

 

Discount offer.

strategicpartnership001@gmail.com and casspaydesk@gmail.com are both fraudulent accounts used to obtain payments. These emails (pdf) appear to be signed by Angela PACIFICO. The purpose of these emails is to fraudulently obtain payments by offering a 10% discount on early payments of 2016 Membership Renewal.


iatabsp1@gmail.com is another fraudulent attempt claiming outstanding payment, and encouraging prompt payments to avoid sanctions.

 

IATA pet delivery service alert.

There are “Pet Delivery Service” emails (pdf) that can easily be identified by recognizing several misspelling errors, mix of font’s type, color and size. The customers are offered to receive a puppy which will be delivered after the payment has been made. Usually the payment is suggested to be made through a delivery company and not credit card transference. Please consider that IATA itself is not engaged in delivering pets.

 

'reply-to' alert.

IATA customers have reported receiving fraudulent e-mails (pdf) which either come from or have 'reply-to' e-mail addresses ending in any domain from list of fraudulent domains . There are many different versions of these emails in circulation. Notice that if you see two senders when clicking 'reply-to' means that original sender wants to be hidden from the original message.
