Education 2.0 Conference Deconstructs This Fraudulent Spam Email:
Although our conference offers some great offers periodically, the red flags in the email above would never be present in a legitimate email from our end.
To start off, make sure you verify the email ID before proceeding. The use of “Education2konf” should be an instant red flag, seeing as to how our legitimate mail would contain, “Education2conf.com” instead. It's the most blatant errors like these that can slip under your nose at times.
Proceeding to the body of the email, our representatives would never suggest you use any “exclusive portals” operated by third parties before informing you of their authenticity (Managers associated with the conference get in touch occasionally with special offers for our special attendees). The Education 2.0 Conference would also never close off by asking you to pay first without walking you through the conference’s offerings.
Spam Email 2
Education 2.0 Conference welcomes you onboard as an attendee!...
Before we send you your Attendee Pass, please proceed to our donations page, as part of the extended onboarding procedure. Feel free to revert to this email once done & we will contact you shortly!
Spotting All The Red Flags With This Fraudulent Spam Email: Education 2.0 Conference Reviews This Scam
As this email suggests, this particular attendee has already been onboarded. There is complete transparency about all expenses during the initial onboarding procedure. In no way does Education 2.0 Conference require any money from individuals, in the name of “donations”. Moreover, there is no “extended” side to our onboarding process. Remember, our Attendee Passes cover everything that’s discussed and you would never be required to make further “donations.”
Given the different ways scammers approach this, we would advise everyone to stay vigilant and contact our team to clarify any reports of suspicious or fraudulent activities.
