Email scam targeting FICPI members with a request for urgent assistance
Important and Urgent
It has come to our attention that scammers are trying, again, to extract money from FICPI members by pretending to be Julian Crump, FICPI President.
Just this afternoon, a number of FICPI members received emails purporting to be from me which asked for their urgent assistance.  These emails did not originate from me and were fraudulent.

I am sending this message through as many social media channels as I can to alert as many FICPI members as possible of this illegal activity.

Please ignore any messages of this kind that you may receive and under no circumstance act on its contents or engage with the scammer.
I copy below a sample of the kind of email received for your reference:

Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience. 
If you have been affected, please contact me at

Julian Crump
FICPI President
Sent by FICPI - Holbeinstrasse 36-38, 4003 Basel, Switzerland
Authorized by Dr Alexander Wyrwoll, President of Communications Commission.
