Information on possible frauds against the conference participants, especially related to the accommodation booking

Very recently, we have been informed about several attempts of possible fraud actions regarding the accommodation of the FQMT’21 conference participants in the Pyramida Hotel. Some suspicious persons either call or send e-mails to the potential FQMT’21 participants with the proposal to manage a discounted accommodation in the Pyramida Hotel. By phone or by insecure web forms they are also asking for credit card numbers and other participant details.

Please be aware that neither the FQMT’21 organizers nor the Pyramida Hotel management have been undertaking such actions. The director and management of the Hotel are not aware of anybody out of the Hotel who is entitled to make such offers.

Based on this recent information and the experiences from the previous FQMT conferences and other conferences held world-wide in the last years, we would like to warn the potential participants strongly about possible fraud actions by some suspicious companies and/or persons attempting to arrange the accommodation in the Pyramida Hotel.

IMPORTANT - for those who have been already contacted by any suspicious company or people: If you already provided your credit card details to them, we recommend you to block your card immediately.

We strongly recommend you not to provide any personal data to any suspicious company or person.

Please consider carefully proposals of the organization of your accommodation in the Pyramida Hotel also from any agency or indivduals. Only when you use the official FQMT’21 reservation link, the Pyramida Hotel can guarantee trustworthy reservation of the room and the reliable hotel services.

Please, if you get any e-mail or call from any weird companies or persons, please, inform the FQMT’21 organizers (Vaclav Spicka) immediately.

In the opposite way: if we get any additional important information, we will let you know immediately.

Please read carefully our recommendations below:

  1. We strongly recommend you not to provide any personal data (especially credit card numbers and confirmation e-mails from the FQMT’21 organizers or from the Pyramida Hotel) to any agency or individual which would show behavior similar to that described above. Please also consider very carefully to inform any other person or company not related to the conference about your intentions and data related to the FQMT’21.
  2. Before the previous FQMT conferences, there were even cases when somebody was pretending that she or he was an organizer of the Conference and was providing incorrect information on the conference program. To avoid possibility that you will be following advices given you either by phone or by E-mail by some false organizers of the FQMT’21 conference, please, do not take seriously any information, which is not either from Vaclav Spicka, Peter D. Keefe or from the official conference E-mail.

The software system of the Pyramida Hotel including the special link for the FQMT’21 participants and the software systems of the FQMT’21 conference have been thoroughly checked and it is sure that there is no leakage of any information from their databases – so both sides will be completely safe. No information on credit cards used for both accommodation booking and for conference fee payment will be accessible to the FQMT’21 organizers.

    In the case that you provide your booking reference code to somebody and agree with the cancellation of your original reservation and with possible arrangement of your accommodation in the Pyramida Hotel via different company, please be aware that the Pyramida Hotel cannot issue any confirmation of your accommodation and you should check status of your accommodation yourself.
