The NAB and RAB are alerting Radio Show attendees about a scam.

The organizations say an unnamed and unaffiliated third-party is contacting attendees with an offer to sell the Radio Show attendee contact list (including email and phone). 

NAB and RAB say they have not given any information to this group, “nor have they received permission from us to sell or distribute such information,” they tell attendees in an email.

“The disclaimer on the bottom of their promotion states that the information was ‘... acquired by tele-calling & email campaigning ...’ by the group.”

Per their privacy policy, RAB and NAB say they do not sell email addresses or phone numbers, and they generally don’t share their attendee contact information, “except when asked to do so by law, regulation or government request, or on a restricted basis with contractors fulfilling obligations directly related to NAB/RAB activities.”
