Hotel Scam Warning

It has been brought to our attention that some of you that have already registered for our upcoming SKA-VLBI workshop are being approached by people claiming to be hotel booking agents who will assist people with making their hotel bookings for this event. Those approaches have in some cases been made by email and in others by telephone. Please be advised that is not a legitimate activity, but appears to be a scam designed to extract your credit card details. Please do not engage with such attempts.

Apparently other conferences whose website was hosted on Indico were targeted for this type of illegal activity.
