Alert: Misrepresentation and Deception of CHPA Name/Logo on Craigslist
OCTOBER 30, 2017--Over the past few weeks, CHPA has received multiple notices regarding someone reaching out to individuals, apartment owners and corporate relocation professionals on Craigslist and other listing sites representing himself as CHPA. This individual uses multiple names, various email accounts that include the letters CHPA, says he is with CHPA, uses the logo, and also sometimes includes CHPA’s mailing address as his contact information.
CHPA is doing everything it can to prevent this misrepresentation of its name and likeness, including pursuing legal action, so that our valued industry partners and clients can safeguard themselves against fraud. In the meantime, we encourage you to approach any such solicitation cautiously.
Should you receive an inquiry from anyone who says they are with the Corporate Housing Providers Association, please contact CHPA CEO Mary Ann Passi at firstname.lastname@example.org so that appropriate action can be taken.
Official communications from CHPA team members are always sent from e-mail addresses ending with @chpaonline.org, or from our e-newsletter provider, Multibriefs/Multiview. If you have questions regarding the authenticity of a communication from CHPA, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your ongoing support of CHPA and for helping us ensure the CHPA name and likeness are well-represented throughout the industry.
