Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos

Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of ISN2A2020 is working with CHS

We have received some alerts from participants this week regarding this email: Ehotel Services via DocuSign .

If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! This problem affects many conferences, not only the PROTEOMASS BIOSCOPE conferences.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

With kindest regards
