Shippers Beware: Scammers Using IATA Name to Extort Payment
Shippers and others worldwide are now receiving suspicious emails and phone calls—sometimes explicitly threatening jail time—in an attempt to secure payment on fraudulent invoices. Fraudsters at times even use fake social media accounts or the identities of real IATA personnel to lend credence to their false claims.
IATA has set up a dedicated web page at IATA.org to help stakeholders combat fraud and abuse from scammers. The page includes a full list of known fraudulent email addresses and domain names used to further these schemes. These emails may be “spoofed”—meaning they appear to be from the bona-fide IATA.org domain, when in fact they are not.
IATA urges those who receive suspicious messages to report fraud to firstname.lastname@example.org.

My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
Corporate Product Stewardship Specialist
The instructor did an excellent job presenting a very dry subject; keeping everyone interested and making it enjoyable.
Hazardous Waste Professional
I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.
