It has come to our attention that some NADP members, CONVERGE exhibitors and sponsors have been receiving e-mails stating they may purchase the CONVERGE attendee list from outside vendor companies. These emails are not coming from NADP nor are the companies emailing associated with NADP. They are scams. The attendee list is free to all CONVERGE attendees.
This is an ongoing issue faced by meeting organizers worldwide. We encourage you to respond to these solicitations with a demand that you and your company be taken off their e-mail list immediately. If the e-mails continue, the Federal Trade Commission advises that you forward unwanted or deceptive messages to the Federal Trade Commission at email@example.com and file a complaint with the FTC here.
You can also send the spam emails to your e-mail provider or your company's IT dept. At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed. Some e-mail services have buttons that allow you to mark messages as junk mail or report them spam. If you can determine the sender's e-mail provider, you can report the spam to them as well. Most web mail providers and ISPs want to cut off spammers who abuse their system. Make sure to include the entire spam e-mail and say that you're complaining about spam.
