We would like to make you aware of a situation that has been affecting conferences nationwide. There are companies (Convention Housing Services, Global Housing, Global Travel, etc.) who claim to be the official housing bureau and ask to “assist” you with hotel reservations. They may disguise themselves as part of the USC Tamkin Symposium on Elder Abuse or may claim to represent the Westin Pasadena and note they can get better rates, the room block is filled, or use other sales pitch methods. They are NOT the official housing bureau and are NOT affiliated with the USC Tamkin Symposium on Elder Abuse in any way.
If you receive a call from any company claiming to represent USC Tamkin Symposium on Elder Abuse, be aware that this is probably a scam and do not make the reservation or provide your credit card information. Please make your reservations directly with the Westin Pasadena by using the online reservation link above or call the Westin Pasadena at the 866-837-4181.
If you are contacted by any such company, please ask for the company name, phone number and contact that called (email if possible) and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
