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.
