APA Pacific Hotel Scam

Michael Brownstein writes in with the following warning:

Philosophers: if you are going to the Pacific APA and have reserved a room at the Westin, beware of a phone call from someone from “Exhibitors Housing Management.” It’s a scam. They will say that the conference rate has been lowered and they’ll try to get your CC info in order to adjust the rate. Somehow they got my name and number and knew I was registered for the conference. I spoke with the manager at the hotel and they’re contacting the APA.

If anyone else has further relevant information on this, please send it in and I will post it.

I’ve been in touch with the conference hotel (the Westin Bayshore) and this is a scam. Please be assured that neither the Pacific Division nor the Westin has provided any email addresses or phone numbers to any third party. Probably the outfit is googling those listed in the on-line program.
