E-mail Scams

Women's Health and Education Center (WHEC) denounces scam e-mails falsely implying association or affiliation with WHEC.

Various scam e-mails purporting or implying to be from or associated with the Women's Health and Education Center (WHEC) or its e-learning Project: WomensHealthSection.com, have been circulating on the Internet. Some of these e-mails request detailed information and/or money from individuals, businesses or non-profit organizations with the promise that they will receive funds or other benefits like posting on WomensHealthSection.com, in return. Other e-mails ask for registration fees for conferences/CME courses allegedly sponsored by WHEC. These e-mails sometimes carry the WHEC logo, and emanate from or refer to an e-mail address which is made to look like a WHEC address.

These e-mails do not emanate from WHEC, and are not in any way associated with WHEC projects or events or CME courses. WHEC wishes to warn the public of these misleading practices, and suggests that recipients of invitations such as those described above (whether sent by e-mail or communicated in any other way) verify their authenticity before sending any response. In particular, WHEC suggests that recipients do not send money or personal information in response to invitations from anyone who claims to be awarding funds, grants, scholarships, certificates, lottery winnings, or prizes, and/or who requests payment for registration fees and hotel-rooms reservations, in the name of WHEC. It is not WHEC policy to charge for attendance at meetings.

If you have any doubts about the authenticity of an e-mail, letter or phone call purportedly from, for or on behalf of WHEC, please contact us. WHEC is trying to put a halt to these misleading practices, and we would therefore greatly appreciate your help in bringing suspect communications to our attention.
