We’ve recently learned that companies are soliciting SXSW exhibitors with lists that allegedly contain SXSW attendee information. SXSW does not sell or transfer attendee information to third-parties for commercial purposes. Any message making these claims is not affiliated with SXSW and does not contain information from SXSW about its attendees.
The following email addresses we’ve seen used for these scam messages: @aptadata.com, @b2bguidance.com, @fortunedatabase.com, @listinfous.com, and @techbusiness.com. Be on the lookout for any suspicious emails and don’t let these third-party solicitors deceive you.
