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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
Airlines, agencies and partners
To verify the validity of IATA's key stakeholders we recommend to:
