Additionally, we are increasingly being confronted with fake websites which seem to relate to congresses but have not been commissioned or authorised by ESTRO neither their PCO Mondial Congress & Events. Therefore we strongly recommend ignoring these calls (and/or emails) and NOT PROVIDING credit card details.
