Important Message to all past and current Saltscapes Expo Exhibitors:

To all our valued Saltscapes Expo exhibitors - A WARNING!

We extend our appreciation, first of all, for your participation in what is now the largest and most popular consumer show east of Montreal. It is our earnest hope that you will find your investment in this event to be useful and profitable and we invite your feedback, comments and suggestions at any time.

For several years now, exhibitors in consumer shows all across North America have been plagued by a couple of spam artists, one in Mexico and another in eastern Europe (Slovakia). We are no exception. Several of our exhibitors have been victimized by the European outfit - a company called Fair Guide or Data Publishers - in the past several years.

The scam involves contacting exhibitors in consumer shows all across the continent, including elsewhere in Atlantic Canada, asking for confirmation of details for an ad in a show guide. The letter leaves the impression of an existing business relationship with the show in question but fine print buried at the bottom declares a signature on the form to be a contract for advertising services. A fraudulent invoice is followed up by harassment, threats and legal intimidation.

We advise our exhibitors of the following:

If you receive any offer of advertising connected with your presence at the Saltscapes Expo, ignore it. Saltscapes has authorized no-one to contact our exhibitors for any reason, and will not. If you have staff, please notify them not to respond to any such solicitation as well.

This fraudulent company is currently on the run from authorities in Europe (having moved out of Austria to avoid prosecution) and is being tracked down by the United States Federal Trade Commission. While we, and others, have complained to the RCMP for several years, to our knowledge no action has been taken in Canada to protect businesses from this scam.

If you are contacted in such a way, or already have been scammed, you should do the following:
1) Report the scam to your local trading standards and to the police.
2) DO NOT PAY ANYTHING
3) DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE SCAMMERS and wait out the legal-threat storm.
4) Optional: Please complain to the receiving bank that their client is a scammer and that bank is receiving money obtained by deception. You can link to pages like this one online to help you make your case.
