We are not working with any other organisation to contact you on our behalf. We have not authorised any other company or third party to use VisitScotland's name or logo. 

Should you be contacted by a third party - or if you are unsure whether the person who has contacted you works for VisitScotland - please get in touch by emailing and we'll confirm whether the communication is from us.

Police Scotland has a host of advice and information related to scams and fraud which may assist you in identifying false approaches.


Tips from Police Scotland


  • be on guard if someone turns up unexpectedly
  • don’t assume it’s real – professional-looking websites, adverts or social media posts don’t always mean that an opportunity is genuine.
  • criminals can use the names of well-known brands or individuals to make their scams appear legitimate
  • don’t be rushed or pressured into making a decision – a genuine organisation won’t force you to part with your money
  • avoid uninvited investment offers, especially those over cold calls
