We've had a couple of reports about a spam email that sent from "Mina Wylie, Marketing Executive" offering attendee lists for a supposed NICVA event. 

We are not running an event called The Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action Expo 2018 nor do we sell lists of people attending our events. 

If you receive this email or similar, please ignore it and delete.  We protect the information about the people and organisations we work with and would never share data with marketing companies.  Our Privacy Notice sets out how we acquire and process personal data.

Activity such as this can also be reported to Action Fraud https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_phishing

Here's the email in question
