ACWA Warning of Scam Emails Claiming to Have Contact Info For Sale by Heather Engel Jun 3, 2020 Water News ACWA has learned that there are scammers claiming to have a database for sale with contact information of people registered for ACWA’s upcoming conference. This type of scam has unfortunately become more common within recent years, but ACWA does not sell or give away member or conference attendee contact information, including email addresses. Although the scam emails vary in wording, some claim to have such information as names, job titles, email addresses and phone numbers. “Please rest assured that ACWA takes this matter very seriously and does not sell nor give companies or individuals member contact information,” said ACWA Executive Director Dave Eggerton. “ACWA values its members and understands how important it is to retain members’ trust that their information is safe. That is why, although we believe the claim of having such a list is false, we have hired a technology firm with expertise in our customer relationship management software system and cyber security to assist with an internal investigation.” Anyone who receive an email claiming to have access to an ACWA attendee list or member information is encouraged to forward a copy of the message to CyberSecurity@acwa.com. Email recipients can also report this and other email scams to the Better Business Bureau at www.bbb.org/scamtracker/reportscam.
