The BCYBA has been alerted to a letter being distributed to BCYBA members and Boat Show exhibitors from the Uruguayan company International Fairs Directory asking to update their contact information in the database. A copy of the letter can be viewed here.
We would like to warn you against their offer to update your contact information by sending back the form. The fine print of this letter claims that a return of the information will amount to a three-year contract with an annual fee of 1,212 Euros for the broker.
The BCYBA is in no way affiliated with this organization and has never provided any exhibitor's data whatsoever to this company.
We advise you to simply ignore these types of letters, e-mails or calls. If you have already returned the form, we advise you not to pay any invoice you may receive, and to send a recorded delivery letter to break up the contract.
Should you wish to report this to the RCMP, you may do so here. Should you receive any similar letters from this or other organizations, please advise the BCYBA as soon as possible so that we may alert our members.
