Phone Scam Alert for GRC Attendees
December 9, 2015
Alert: GRC attendees have received calls where the caller misrepresents his/her affiliation with GRC and the venue where a GRC meeting is being held. Please do not respond to the caller or supply any personal or credit card information. If in doubt, hang up and contact GRC directly at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Other organizations have reported this apparent scam, which appears to target conferences. Attendees of other conferences have reported the person calling:
- Claims that the hotel rate has dropped and they would like to adjust the cost.
- Claims that rooms are running out and must be booked as soon as possible.
- Claims that rooms are sold out and that they can help find you alternative hotels.
- Claims they can get you a better room rate than the conference organizers.
These callers have used various names and phone numbers. One organization that has called GRC attendees sometimes refers to itself as EHS or Exhibitors Housing Services. That organization is NOT affiliated with GRC in any way. Numbers that have been reported include (but are not limited to):
- 44 (0) 800-014-8922
We are making every effort with our legal team to get this organization to cease its activities.
