  • If you are unsure of whether the e-mail you have received comes from IATA, write to us at information.security@iata.org. Please make sure to attach the full fraudulent message 

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
