WARNING: Housing “Pirates” And “Poachers” Scam
SAME works with Connections Housing to create room blocks for our attendees at the SAME contracted hotels. Please be vigilant if contacted by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for the SAME or the Joint Engineer Training Conference (JETC). The ONLY way to book your rooms for JETC is through our housing site or by calling 702-476-6976 or 855-476-6976. If you are contacted by one of these poacher companies, please notify SAME immediately.
Room poaching is a practice carried out by third-party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or destination management companies to solicit registrants for room reservations. Poachers often represent themselves as being affiliated with SAME. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Additional deceptive tactics may include distributing forms or promotional materials that appear to be issued by SAME.
- Room poachers make it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments and expose us to penalties and increased room rates for our events.
- Room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been canceled and hefty cancelation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.
