ICCFA Warns Of Hotel Booking Scam
We received an email from ICCFA this morning warning that a company called Global Housing Management is calling suppliers and funeral directors claiming to they want to help you find a hotel room during the 2013 Annual Convention because the host hotel is sold out.
We received this email from ICCFA around 11:00am, ironically it came just minutes after our office received a call from the above Global Housing Management company. Thankfully we politely declined to talk with them.
Below is the warning from ICCFA:
ICCFA has heard from members who have received calls and emails from a company called Global Housing Management. Representatives from GHM say that they are calling to help you find a hotel room during our 2013 Annual Convention because our host hotel is sold out.
THIS IS A SCAM!
Please do not provide any information to these people. Simply hang up or delete any emails from the company. ICCFA NEVER contracts with third-party vendors for hotel reservations. A sample email from GHM is pasted below.
If you would like to legitimately reserve your hotel room now at our official Annual Convention hotel, the Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina, you may do so by visiting our Marriott reservation page or by calling 888-789-3090. Say that you would like to be included in the ICCFA room block. The discounted rate is $169 per night.
P.S.: The educational program for the Annual Convention will be posted soon. Check next week’s issue of Wireless for a big announcement.
