The Global Plant Council has learned that someone has been contacting representatives of the council impersonating our President Prof. Ros Gleadow asking for money for helping another fellow representative pay for visa, travel tax, and terminal fees. This is all a SCAM. To some people, besides emailing, they have been called by phone.
Please be aware that this is a SCAM designed to obtain money. Please exercise extreme caution when contacted, do not reveal any personal details and report to your local cybercrime units.
In parallel, contact us to let us know and please consider reporting the abuse to Google as well using this link https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse
