Fraudulent Websites and Emails Requests: Warning & Disclaimer

Anyone who uses the Internet is faced with a range of dangers, including spam, phishing and viruses. It is often difficult to tell whether an e-mail, website or caller is genuine or directed by fraudsters. You need to stay vigilant and suspicious. Therefore we would like to inform that, unfortunately, there are fraudulent websites and individuals attempting to exploit the EFORT name and EFORT events such as the EFORT Annual Congress.

Please be aware that certain individuals might approach you by falsely presenting themselves as EFORT Board member, employee or any affiliated agent or representative. Under this false pretense, they might try to gain access to your personal information or to acquire money or other valuables from you by claiming that they are contacting you on behalf of EFORT or EFORT Board member. Such fraudulent offers and claims are usually received via email, the internet, text message, phone, etc. These claims and offers are fraudulent and invalid and you are strongly advised to exercise great caution when you receive such an offer of employment or notice. Be very mindful of such scams.

Such an offer or claim will probably be in the form of an email sent from a fake email address or from a free email address and not from an official EFORT email address. Please note that you will never receive any financial claim from EFORT.

In any case, please disregard any written or oral request that you believe is or might be fraudulent or suspicious. Please note that under no circumstances shall EFORT be held liable or responsible for any claims, losses, damages, expenses or other inconvenience resulting from or in any way connected to the actions of these imposters.
