Iata has put out a notification warning customers of a new spate of phishing e-mails in South Africa containing fake references to Iata platforms.

“We constantly invest in sophisticated strategies and tools to prevent and mitigate fraud cases, systematically monitoring fraudulent attacks. Unfortunately, despite our efforts, online fraud activities like ‘phishing e-mails’ continue to happen. These ‘phishing e-mails’ aim to obtain confidential information, on many occasions also installing hostile software into your devices/systems.”

Iata has advised agents to not respond to suspicious emails that do not have the @iata.org domain name and to make sure not to access any embedded links shown in these e-mails.
