RVIA has released a statement that an unfamiliar vendor or service provider has been attempting to scam other members of the RV industry by giving the impression tha they are affiliated with and/or represent RVIA and the National RV Trade Show.
RVIA has recently been alerted that some of its members have received an email from a company named Conference Merit offering to sell a purported list of leads from the 2016 National RV Trade Show. This company is not affiliated with RVIA or the National RV Trade Show and has not purchased or otherwise obtained any such information from RVIA.
"Please note that RVIA does not sell, rent and/or distribute our exhibitor or attendees contact information to unauthorized third parties," the RVIA released in a statement press release. "Further, we do not approve the unauthorized use of the RVIA or National RV Trade Show names under any circumstances. Although members are, of course, free to undertake their own due diligence and come to their own business conclusions, please be advised that any business you do decide to conduct with such companies will be at your own risk."
