Please be aware that you may be contacted by phone or email by third party companies that act as travel agencies to solicit you with aggressive or deceptive tactics for hotel reservations. These unauthorised agents may misrepresent themselves as the official TAT 12 housing bureau and may even illegally use the congress name or logo, but these agents are not affiliated with the TAT 12, it’s hosts, or it’s organisers in any way.
Please be aware that this can be a phishing scam designed to obtain your credit card information so you should use extreme caution if you are contacted. Do NOT share any information – not your credit card number, your personal information, or any details about your hotel reservation. You may incur credit card charges, service fees, hotel cancellation fees, or even lose your legitimate hotel reservation.
Please also note that the TAT 12 organiser, African Agenda, will not call you to solicit hotel reservations. You may receive emails regarding hotel reservations, but these will come from the official congress domain “@tat12.com” or the organiser’s domain “@africanagenda.com”.
If you choose to make a hotel reservation for TAT 12, you should only use the links provided on the congress website, or by emailing or calling the congress organiser (+27 21 683 2934, firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are not sure who has contacted you about your hotel reservation, or if a scammer has contacted you, please inform the congress organiser on email@example.com right away.
