it came to our attention that there have been spam calls or e-mails addressing conference participants. The company EHS (Exhibitors Housing Services) has called or e-mailed attendees of iCT Conference 2016. They claim to work for the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria/the conference organisation and ask for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation (see e-mail below).
Please do not give away any information or credit card details if you receive such a call or e-mail. This company is not working for the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria or any other company involved in the organisation of the iCT 2016.
EHS scans websites of conferences and googles the people that are attending or are listed somewhere on the website to obtain information like e-mail addresses or telephone numbers.
