Fraudulent Activity Involving Upcoming IFRS Conference in Malaysia
The IFRS Foundation Trustees found that fake advertising material including a conference brochure and email alerts is being circulated purporting to be advertising an IFRS conference in Malaysia on 27-30 March 2012.
“Please note that this material, from a company called Analytics Secure Associates, is entirely unrelated to the legitimate IFRS Foundation Conference that takes place on 28 March in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and that is organised by the IFRS Foundation and the Malaysian Accounting Standards Board,” the IFRS Foundation said.
The fake advertisement material requires payments in Nigerian Naira to a bank account that does not belong to the IFRS Foundation or to the Malaysian Accounting Standards Board.
“We would advise you not to make any payment as indicated on this website to the named body. We have taken the appropriate steps to address this issue,” it added.
