The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is aware of various schemes, being circulated via e-mails, from the internet web sites, and via regular mail or fax, falsely stating that they are issued by or associated with UNWTO concerning the organization of lotteries and the offer of employment. UNWTO denies any involvement in such activities. Such use of the UNWTO name, acronym and emblem is unauthorized and illegal. The relevant authorities will be informed of any such activities, of which the UNWTO becomes aware, for appropriate action to be taken by those authorities. Extreme caution should be exercised in relation to any suspicious communication as financial loss and identity theft could result from the sending of money or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondence.
