It has been brought to our attention that there are multiple companies contacting our sponsors, claiming to represent the American Association of Private Lenders (AAPL) offering “assistance” with registration and hotel bookings.
Two such reported companies that are aggressively cold-calling and spamming companies whose names have appeared on www.AAPLConference.com pages are Exhibitor Housing Management (EHM / ehmtravel.com) and Exhibition Housing (EHS / ehshousing.com).
To be clear, these companies and others are NOT AFFILIATED WITH AAPL and are not authorized to use our name or trademark in any solicitations.
AAPL is working through the proper channels to stop the deceptive practices of these companies and apologize for their pesky behaviors.
Please be aware of the following known scams which we’ve heard about over the last week:
- No one should contact you directly to book your hotel room or offer you a “special discounted conference rate” or “can save you $30.00 off your room rate”. If you receive one of these calls or emails, it is a scam. They are not affiliates with AAPL.
- If you receive an email from documents about reservations from anyone but AAPL, Caesars Palace, or wherever you booked your accommodations please ignore this message. This company is not affiliated with AAPL.
- If you receive a phone call from someone wanting to speak to the “tradeshow coordinator or the person who is handling AAPL’s Annual Conference that your company is attending in November”, it is a scam and they are not affiliated with AAPL.
- If someone emails you claiming to be from AAPL’s Exhibitor Department, and the email is not from an aaplonline.com email address, do not share any information with them. The company is not affiliated with AAPL. There are three employees of AAPL. If you don’t hear any of our names it would be safe to assume it is a scam.
We strongly advise that you be cautious of working with any company that can offer you a run-of-house room at a Vegas hotel for less than the $165.00 per night plus tax and service that include; unlimited local calls, in-room high speed Internet each day
Again, we are very sorry for any confusion or inconvenience they are causing. Thank you to all who have alerted us to this matter and sent in the information we needed to take action and help prevent others from becoming victims. Should you have any questions regarding our 7th Annual Conference please contact us at 913-888-1250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
