Directory scammers

 

Some of the directory impostors we know are ExpoGuide, The FAIR Guide, UTP Digital Directories (fairguide.com), (Construct Data Publishers Verlas AG), Euro Business Guide, Eu company Directory European City Guide, The Millennium Guide, The European Internet Guide, The International Fax Directory or IT&T fax directory Europa-Club & World Travel Register, 1st European City Guid,e The Tour and Travel Guide, Verlag Fax Directory, Classified Telefax Pages cdnet.at

Companies offer paid visibility to many of our exhibitors in foreign exhibitor directories and often send a pre-filled directory enquiry form along with it. The International Union of Exhibition Organisers (UFI) has taken action, seeking to prevent the activities of these companies by legal means and warning its member companies against directory impostors. Fair organisers in many countries (including Messukeskus the Expo and Convention Centre) have published on their websites instructions for those who have been the victims of this fraudulent practice.

Messukeskus the Expo and Conventon Centre has nothing to do with the above-mentioned companies and their lists, and we are not aware of any advantage or visibility that these lists might bring to the scam companies. The best way to ensure the validity of the list is to always check with the exhibition organiser in the future.

DO THIS:

  • If you are still not sure whether this is a directory enquiry related to your participation, please contact your contact person at Messukeskus the Expo and Convention Centre.
  • If you have already responded to such a fraudulent request for information and have received an invoice, do not pay it. You can send the addressee of the invoice a message that you do not intend to pay it. Do not react any further to these bills and charges. In practice, foreign scam companies have no means of recovering the amounts they charge for their unpaid services.

Check your invoicing details

Check your invoicing details on the order confirmation and send any comments to yrityspalvelu@messukeskus.comby 13 May 2024.

Please note that changes made to the invoicing details after the invoice has been issued are subject to an additional charge.

In addition to the marketing name, you can easily upload your company logo, a link to your company website and any other information you would like to share with visitors (videos/photos). Please provide all the necessary information about your company, so that visitors have enough time to get to know the companies attending the event.
