A venture may attempt to contact you with attractive offers of hotel or apartment rentals for your stay in Cannes, sometimes using the logos of the Marché du Film, Festival de Cannes, or the Palme d’Or without our knowledge. The fraud occurs when the participant arrives at the hotel or residence where the booking was made only to discover that a reservation does not exist. The fraudulent companies can no longer be contacted and there is no possibility of having payment reimbursed. Marché participants have reported falling victim to fraudulent accommodation providers presenting themselves under names such as: Allen & Stratton Events, Business Travel International, Cannes Event, Capital Exhibitions, Concierge PLus group, Europ Concierge Net, Euro Events, Euro Events Expo, Expos-International, Expo Travel Group, Global Living Group, ITC Today, Krystel Karam International, Originata Event, Premier Destinations, Riviera Luxury Limousines, Riviera Network, Splash Ilc, Splendor, Splendor Global, Star Eventz, The Ultimate Living Group, Universal Event Solutions Limited, Universal Show.
