Hotel Room Scam - Beware!

There are companies (including Exhibition Housing Management or Convention Housing Services, Global Housing, Global Travel, etc...) who have been contacting our attendees to "assist" with hotel reservations.  They sometimes disguise themselves as the American Camping Association (ACA) Housing Bureau or claim to represent the hotels in our block.   They may claim they can get better rates, that rooms are limited, or use other sales pitch methods.   They are NOT the official housing bureau and are NOT affiliated with the ACA in any way.

If you receive a call from this or any company claiming to represent the ACA, be aware that this is a scam and DO NOT MAKE THE RESERVATION.   These companies are NOT affiliated with the ACA in any capacity.
