CONFERENCE SCAM ALERT!!!
Fraudulent Hotel Room Reservations Services from Exhibitor
Housing Services or Expo Housing Services (EHS)
A third-party housing company, Exhibitor Housing Services or Expo Housing Services (EHS), is contacting exhibitors and / or advertisers representing themselves as the agent in charge of the sleeping room block for the 2018 PRWA Annual Conference, offering room rates lower than those quoted on the Pennsylvania Rural Water Association (PRWA) website. They have also contacted individuals stating that the room block was lost and they need a credit card to "rebook" the
room. These are fraudulent claims! EHS is not affiliated with PRWA or with any hotels with room blocks held for our upcoming annual conference. The hotels are NOT holding blocks for this third party vendor or for any other entity on behalf of PRWA.
All hotels have been notified of this fraudulent activity. If you have already booked your hotel room(s), they are secured. You can contact the hotel to verify your hotel stay as well if you would prefer.
Third-party companies, such as Exhibition Housing Services (EHS), are fraudulent and prey on several conference attendees and exhibitors each year.
Do not send any personal information, including credit card information to EHS or to any other unknown vendor. If you receive an e-mail from EHS, please forward to it to [email protected]. If you have made a reservation through EHS, or have questions or concerns, contact PRWA at [email protected].
