LoneStarCon 3 Alerts Dealers to Scam
The LoneStarCon 3 committee sent an alert about scam phone calls some dealers who attended Chicon have been receiving:
Some people who were dealers at Chicon have been receiving cold calls from a company claiming to be booking housing for the Worldcon. Other claims include that the hotel is almost full, and that discounted dealers reservations are available at the Hyatt near the convention. Lonestarcon 3 has no connection with this firm, the Hyatt is not a convention hotel, and there are no discounted dealers room rates at the convention hotels.
Rooms are still available in both of the official convention hotels: the Marriot Rivercenter and the Marriott Riverbank.
