Statement from MA Exhibitions (Organisers of MDEE):
If you receive a fraudulent email from companies claiming to be officially partnered with the show, likely offering marketing services and/or access to the show's data, please know that we are not in any way affiliated with these companies. These companies target the speakers and exhibitors for events across the board.
Your security is important to us, so if you're unsure whether or not an email you have received is fraudulent, please get in touch and we'd be happy to verify it for you. We would also like to reassure you that we do not release, sell or share any data related to Music & Drama Education Expo with any outside parties.
Advice from the Association of Event Organisers:
Our advice is to IGNORE THEM COMPLETELY, and do not communicate with them in any way. Writing letters and responding to emails simply confirms that you exist and are available at the address/email address/number they have for you, and therefore payment can be pursued.
What you can do:
- Report it to your local trading standards
- DO NOT PAY ANYTHING
- DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS even when they threaten legal action
