RMA and APPA warn members of Scam

There have been several attempts to scam various regions across APPA involving regional conference attendee lists.  Scammers are attempting to get personal information, mainly credit card information, by calling attendees saying they cannot pull-up reservations made at the conference hotel.  They are attempting to get the attendee to give credit card information over the phone.  RMA would like to notify members of these attempts, and to never give personal/business credit card information over the phone.

Scammers are clever and are very skilled at making phone calls that seem legitimate with some elements of truth.  Please be aware to protect yourself and your institution.
