Note to exhibitors:
Attendee List Scam Warning

It has come to our attention that companies are contacting some of the Organization of American Historians exhibitors, claiming to offer our attendee lists. This is a common occurrence with conferences and trade shows in recent years.

It is OAH's policy to NEVER sell, rent or share attendee email contact information. No company is authorized to distribute or sell any email lists of attendees for our events. OAH is not providing these lists or generating these messages.

How did they get your email address? 
Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the “@” sign).

If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of OAH conference attendees, do not respond to it. By responding–even with a request to unsubscribe–you confirm that your email address is a valid one, which may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again.
