SCAM ALERT: A scam accommodation company has been contacting congress attendees. Please read the notice on the ‘Latest Update’ page for more information.
SCAM accommodation / travel provider
A company named Exhibitor Housing Services (EHS) is contacting speakers and delegates of the EuCheMS Congress claiming that they are attached to the 7th EuCheMS Congress with a fraudulent travel and hotel booking scheme. The company is calling / emailing attendees with regards to their accommodation and travel and encouraging bookings. The company makes various false claims, such as hotel rooms are running out and must be booked as soon as possible.
The company is in no way affiliated to the 7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress or the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Please be aware that this is a SCAM and you should exercise extreme caution when contacted by EHS. We recommend that you DO NOT interact with this company in any way and do not provide them with any personal or financial information, or any details of your accommodation booking.
Conference delegates will not be contacted by any travel or accommodation agents with regards to the 7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress. There are accommodation options that you can book with through the congress website (www.euchems2018.org). This is managed by the Liverpool Convention Bureau, however there is no obligation for this accommodation to be booked.
If you have any concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘7th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress – accommodation concerns’ in the subject line.
