Scam Alert


MBendi Directory Entry

The latest scam going to our exhibitors is from MBendi Information Services, Cape Town, South Africa, with the subject heading “MBendi Directory Entry [917185]: National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show.” DO NOT respond to this solicitation, as it has nothing whatsoever to do with Sunbelt Shows, Inc., which produces the show.

Expo-Guide

You may receive a solicitation from Expo-Guide, using our corporate name and listing “Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show.” The top says you got a free listing, but the fine type at the bottom says that you will be billed $1571 a year for three years. Although www.expo-guide.com does exist, this is obviously a SCAM. The letters originate from Austria and Mexico. Do not fall for this scam, as three of our exhibitors have.

FAIRGuide

It has come to our attention that FAIRGuide, which uses very unfair selling practices, is targeting our exhibitors from previous shows and our upcoming shows.

If you have participated in any of our shows in previous years, or are due to participate in the next National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show, you are likely to be targeted.

Under no circumstances should you sign anything indicating you will become part of an “exhibition directory” that will list your company’s products and services, if the letter is sent to you by FAIRGUIDE or CONSTRUCT DATA VERLAG of Vienna, Austria or tradefairguide/Blue Ark Inc of Japan. Our company, Sunbelt Shows, Inc. is not connected to FAIRGuide in any way.

In the fine print of this letter you will find a charge of some USD $851, that will be charged to you annually for a period of three years, for a service that could be of no possible value to you.

Have you been scammed?

Please let us know so that we can notify others on this page.
