Important Fraud Alert
Sham housing companies have, in the past, approached SVP members and exhibitors with fraudulent offerings of hotel rooms at significant discounts. Lured by highly attractive rates, exhibitors and attendees have fallen prey to these imposters, losing significant deposits, discovering hidden costs, up-front charges or being bait and switched to hotel rooms they never booked.  Do NOT give them your credit card information. FASEB will not contact you directly to make a reservation.  Beware of false and fraudulent housing claims!
