Invoices are currently being sent to exhibitors at German fairs which suggest they are invoices from the organiser. The account to which the invoice amount is to be transferred is at Postfinance AG in Zofingen in Switzerland. AUMA (Ausstellungs- und Messe-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft e.V. - Association of the German Exhibition and Trade Fair Industry) has already reported the case in writing, both to the Deutscher Schutzverband gegen Wirtschaftskriminalität (German Association for Protection Against Economic Crime) and the police.
If you are affected, we would request you to send us copies of the counterfeit invoices so that we can pass them on to the authorities responsible.
We would like to point out to our exhibitors that MESSE ESSEN has no business relations with Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV (Expo Guide), Construct Data AG (Fairguide), Matic Verlagsgesellschaft mbH and wwwdb s.r.o (Event fair). If, however, you have signed a contract with them, you can obtain a form from AUMA to serve notice of termination.
