Attempts to scam individuals by claiming to be/supported by ADEE have been notified
We are aware of an ongoing scam that is attempting to pass itself off as being associated to ADEE. In the majority of contexts persons (in most cases elderly or retired males) are contacted by email from Russian females (a variety of names have been used but all have been eastern European in origin). It would appear this scam is targeting a particular cohort who may have IT vulnerability and inexperience.
Over a period of time and communication they make it known that they have been awarded an ADEE scholarship/grant to study or work in a different country. She will share via email what appears to be genuine ADEE letters/ invoices, however they are not.
You are reminded that ADEE does not have local offices in other countries and all financial transactions are handled directly via Denis and Judith in the Dublin office.
Under no circumstances should you exchange money with these scammers. You should block their email immediately and consider running anti-viral software on your systems to check for vulnerability.
Remember ADEE will only collect funding via the Dublin Office and directly into the ADEE bank account in Ireland. We do not run any of these work abroad/scholarship programmes that would result in a recipient having to seek additional funding support.
Be vigilant online, do not respond to unsolicited email from these you do not know, do not click links from untrusted emails. If in doubt do not hesiate to contact us.
