Beware of Hotel Scams:

 

In the past we have had issues with companies contacting conference registrants making FALSE and FRAUDULENT claims about the conference, possibly designed to obtain your credit card information or other information.  

 

FSA is the ONLY authorized organization that will be contacting attendees regarding hotel accommodation and bookings.  Bookings are set up to be made via the link received with the conference registration confirmation email.

 

FSA has a room block at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes reserved. You may only make a reservation through voucher process of Food Shippers. You should only be contacted by a representative of JW Marriott Grande Lakes to confirm your booking or if there is an issue with the booking. 

If you are contacted by any other third-party claiming to be a representative of this hotel or conference, please contact Paul Newbourne, FSA Executive Director, as soon as possible at executivedirector@foodshippersofamerica.org

 

Some tactics to be aware of:

 

• There are issues with your hotel reservation for the conference;

• The hotel room rate for the conference has increased and/or rooms are running out and must be booked with XYZ Firm as soon as possible;

• Hotel rooms for the conference can only be booked through XYZ Firm

• That XYZ Firm can get you a cheaper room rate than the conference organizers;

• Hotel rooms for the conference are sold out and that they can help find you alternatives hotels.

 

Please be aware that this is likely a SCAM designed to obtain your credit card information and/or make phony charges to your credit card. Please exercise extreme caution when contacted by a suspicious third party housing bureau. We recommend that you do NOT give ANY company your credit card number, personal information, or any details about your hotel reservation, unless deemed the official host JW Marriott Grande Lakes resort.
