Hotel Scam Beware When Traveling

BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU TRAVEL and remind your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and anyone you know who travels – especially the older generation – as they may be likely to fall for something like this.
It seems that schemes to cheat people never stop and won’t! But keeping people informed

is a key to helping prevent this from happening to your friends and relatives, so please forward to all of yours. Can’t be too careful these days! This so simple, and reading this, anyone could be caught. You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. When checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for all the charges for your room). You get to your room and settle in. The front desk gets a call and the caller asks for (example) Room 620 (which happens to be your room). Your phone rings in your room.

You answer, and the person on the other end says, “This is the front desk . When checking in, we came cross a problem with your charge card information. Please re-read me your credit card number and verify the 3-digit number on the reverse side of your charge card.”

Not thinking anything strange about the request, you might give this person your information, since the call seems to come from the front desk. But actually, it is a scam by someone calling from outside the hotel/front desk. They’ve asked to be connected to a random room number. If you answer your room phone, they ask for your credit card information and address information, sounding so professional that you do think you are talking to the front desk. If you ever encounter this problem on your vacation, tell the caller that you will go to the front desk to clear up any problems. Then, go to the front desk and ask if there was a problem with your credit card. If there was none, inform the hotel manager that someone acting like a front desk employee called to scam you for your credit card information.
