Beware Fraudulent Communication

Beware Fraudulent Communication

Scam Emails

It has come to our attention that a fake organization is reaching out to participants of the 23rd World Congress of Psychiatry (WCP 2023) using the email address, claiming to be representing the World Psychiatric Association. Please, note that this is NOT an official communication from our organization, be cautious about sharing personal information and always verify the legitimacy of such requests by contacting our official team. Protect your personal data and exercise caution.

The only official method to obtain a personalized letter of invitation is through our registration procedure.

If you are concerned that you might have been targeted by a fraudulent email, please email us via the contact us page.

Fake Websites

Please, be aware that there are several websites impersonating as the WCP23 registration and hotels website. They can be very professional looking and may use online advertising to appear at the top of search results, or contact you via email and ask for personal data.

The only way to access the WCP23 registration forms will be via links on the WCP23 website or from the official WPA congress organizer. This is also the only occasion in which WPA would ask for any personal data such as your address and a payment information.

If you are concerned that you might have been targeted by a fraudulent site, please email us via the contact us page.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna!
