Warning on possible lodging scam

Some participants told us that they were approached by telephone by people from Business Travel Management purporting to help with the booking of accommodation and requesting the credit card information. This is a scam, you should not give them any valuable personal information. The organizing committee has no relation whatsoever with Business Travel Management. No one from the organizers is going to ask for your credit card information especially since we do not need it: in order to book the hotel we need only your name, and if we are going to cover you accommodation expenses then we will pay directly to the hotel (as you know, we can not process reimbursement forms because of bureaucratic reasons).
