UPDATE: same invoice also sent in name of IPM Essen

Warning: Invoice scam GreenTech Amsterdam

Swindlers have targeted GreenTech participants. Fraudulent forms have been sent to our editorial office and to other companies in the sector, which appear to be connected to the exhibition, but which are, in reality three-year contracts for a dubious website.

The letter is accompanied by a partially filled in form with company data. If you complete the form and return it, you will be billed 1,212 euro for an entry in the International Fairs Directory. Moreover, the contract is valid for three years.

The small letters state the contract is valid for three years. Click here to enlarge

It is mentioned in the fine print, but if you do not read the document meticulously, you will easily overlook it and sign the contract. The form states the name of both GreenTech Amsterdam and the RAI.
We would like to expressly state the following again: the GreenTech Amsterdam organization has no connections whatsoever with the company International Fairs Directory, and therefore takes distance to these forms. It is advised not to fill in these forms.

IPM Essen
We have just received notice of a company receiving the same invoice, but this time in name of IPM Essen. Another one warns us for invoices sent out in name of the Fruit Logistica exhibition. You have been warned.
