Otakon issues warning of fake hotel website.
To all of our members:
It has come to our attention that an outside party set up a pirate housing website: “otakon2017.org”.
This website was in no way associated with Otakon, Otakorp Inc., or Experient (our exclusive and official housing provider). We have taken all efforts to shut down the site as soon as we found out, but we cannot determine if any reservations were taken, if reservations through this site will be honored, or what may have happened to any information they may have gathered.
If you did not receive a confirmation email that looks like the one at the end of this message, or if you have any doubts on your reservation’s validity, please contact Experient immediately at:
- 1-800-967-8852 (toll free)
- +1-847-996-5832 (International Residents)
- firstname.lastname@example.org (email)
We are very sorry this has happened, but we are glad we caught it. Our members are important to us, because we are also fans, volunteers, cosplayers, artists and dreamers. Our mantra from day one has been ‘by fans for fans’ and we mean it. I know, I was there, and we could have never got here any other way.
