An outside firm has been making fraudulent claims that they are either (1) working on behalf of CASA (2) representatives from a reservations company or convention housing services or (3) staff from La Costa Resort & Spa. They have been calling or emailing our exhibitors and sponsors asking them to book rooms through them. They may leave a phone number for you to call back. They also request that you provide your credit card and personal information claiming that the hotel room rate has dropped, the rooms may be running out and must be booked ASAP, and claiming that rooms are sold out and would like to assist you with booking at another hotel. THESE CALLS ARE FRAUDULENT!
