    Tactics used by fraudsters

    Fraudsters contact IATA customers by e-mail or telephone, seeking payment for products, services, or other outstanding amounts due.

    Often, the fraudster will use names similar or identical to those of IATA officials.

    Fraudsters use e-mail addresses that include the acronym ‘iata’, but come from different domains such as @iatafinances.org

    The e-mail may appear to come from IATA (such as accounts@iata.org), but the fraudster is using a spoofing technique to hide the true sender address.

    Fraudsters send fake IATA invoices bearing the official IATA logo, and staff names. However, “new” bank account information is provided.
