Blade Show hotel reservation scams
I just received the below email from the Staff at Blade. I'm sure this went out to all the table holders, but thought I would post it here, just in case some folks missed it. Personally, I've received no less then a 1/2 dozen calls from these outfits.... one even had the nerve to tell me that my Blade Show hotel reservation had been accidentally cancelled, and they needed my credit card information to re-establish the reservation...... Knuckleheads!
BEWARE OF FALSE AND FRAUDULENT HOUSING CLAIMS:
The Blade Show has designated EventSphere as the ONLY housing provider for the Blade Show 2016. There are fraudulent companies and organizations that will try to present themselves as official partners of Blade and offer you a potential room that might not be guaranteed or available. Should you be contacted by someone other than EventSphere, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
When booking with Eventsphere while using the online reservation link or calling 855-547-8429, you can expect to receive an immediate confirmation e-mail.
EventSphere will never call you directly to book a reservation. The only reason EventSphere would call you are:
· If you called and left a message wanting a returned call
· If there is a problem with an existing reservation
· If someone from BLADE Show management told EventSphere to contact you, for example, “Sarah, with Blade show passed along your info…”

See me at table 2Q at the Blade Show!
Yeah, they (someone) seems to pull that crap every year. I get them all the time, but seeing as how I live about 17 miles north of the show site ...... kind of a mute point. Good that you posted it so others will be aware.
