The NTOA has learned that unauthorized housing companies (called poachers or pirates) have been contacting NTOA members, offering less expensive rates at hotels for the conference week housing block. When individuals book hotel accommodations through poachers or pirates, the consequences can be costly: Event participants may be left without hotel rooms when they arrive at the event and may incur fraudulent charges on their credit cards.
