Beware of scams implying association with MOAF/ARC

  • MOAF/ARC never charges registration fees for conferences or meetings.
  • MOAF/ARC does not conduct lotteries, or offer prizes or awards through e-mail.
  • MOAF/ARC never asks for money for recruitment.
  • You can report any suspicious e-mail or Web site to Fatmaeltahir59@gmail.com

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forests / Agricultural Research Corporation (MOAF/ARC) is aware of various correspondences, being circulated via e-mails, from Internet Web sites, and via regular mail or fax, falsely stating that they are issued by or associated with MOAF/ARC and/or its officials.

These scams, which may seek to extract money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence, are fraudulent.

MOAF/ARC assumes no responsibility for any consequences, including but not limited to, financial loss and identity theft or other, that may derive from such scams.

These correspondence and documents, e-mail addresses and Web sites are crafted so that they are made to look like they originate from MOAF/ARC. For example, they may contain official-looking MOAF/ARC stationery, including MOAF/ARC logo, emblem or name, or some variation thereof, and e-mail or Web site addresses, including either one or both of the words “Ministry of Agriculture and Forests / Agricultural Research Corporation” or " MOAF/ARC " or some similar name, or the name of a real MOAF/ARC entity or fictitious one.

Unauthorized use of the MOAF/ARC logo, emblem, name, or other names or indicia in these schemes is illegal. The relevant authorities will be informed of any such activities, of which MOAF/ARC becomes aware, for appropriate action to be taken. Caution should be exercised in relation to any suspicious communication, as financial loss and identity theft could result from the sending of money or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondence.
