EXHIBITOR SCAM WARNINGS
Beware of marketing offers from Construct Data (The Fair Guide) and similar companies – the offers look official and the invoices appear legitimate, but they are not.
Dear exhibitors, it has come to our attention that Expo Guide, S.C. of Mexico (aka the Fair Guide) has been targeting JOGS Gem and Jewelry Show Exhibitors requesting company data updates for an online directory.
By using a form similar to our free catalog listing with J.O.G.S. name, this group is offering advertising space on their Fair Guide (www.fairguide.com) and/or Expo Guide (www.expo-guide.com) websites. If an exhibitor signs the advertising agreement, they can be locked into a non-terminable contract at a significant cost. If you receive a document with J.O.G.S. name on it, please contact our office to confirm it is not a scam.
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 213.629.3030
Please be aware of this scam and others. If you have heard of other scams, please contact JOGS Tucson Gem and Jewelry Show right away.
The site, www.stopecg.org, does have information on Expo Guide and other misleading scams.
