Beware of unauthorized or fraudulent hotel agencies and websites!
Please be aware that an increasing number of fraudulent companies are offering hotel rooms and/or registrations to congress attendees.
If you are contacted by any company or agency other than AIM GROUP INTERNATIONAL offering housing for the ERA Congress 2023 in Milan, please note that these companies are not authorized to represent the ERA in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted ERA Congress 2023 room blocks or rates.
If you are contacted by any such agency or have any questions regarding their legitimacy please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Does Hotel Fraud Work?
These groups promote attractive deals with local accommodation providers, but once payment has been received, the company disappears and can no longer be contacted by phone or email. Once the attendee contacts the hotel directly about their room, they realise the hotel has no record of them or their stay. Not only is their money gone, but they must also then scramble to find last-minute accommodation, which is rarely convenient to the venue.
How to Avoid Fraud?
- Book through our Official Accommodation Partner AIM GROUP INTERNATIONAL at email@example.com
- Investigate all documentation regarding the company.
- Use credit cards to guarantee your rooms, rather than wire transfers.
