  • Email SPAM and Phishing Season #ICA24

    This is a friendly reminder that each year, leading up to our annual conference, there is an increase in SPAM and phishing emails from those purporting to be ICA Staff. Unfortunately, there is very little we can do about this, other than be vigilant.

    A few things to remember:

    • Scammers often prey on trust and urgency, so always verify the authenticity of any email before taking action.
    • The International Communication Association will only contact you through the email addresses for official correspondence. Any communication purportedly from ICA staff, but originating from a different domain should be treated with suspicion.
    • ICA has a strict policy against selling member, convention, exhibitor, or social media lists. We do not sell lists. If you receive an offer claiming to provide such lists, it's a scam.
    • Eun-Ju, ICA President, does not need you to immediately pay $5,000 to ensure the ICA doors stay open.
    • Fake Claes, Fake Laura or any other alleged member of the Executive Committee do not need you to pay them $7,500 because Eun-Ju is away.
    • While I used AI to write this post as 'an expert in identity theft', be wary of any ‘staff’ messages not posted from official ICA accounts.
