    New Credit Card Scam

    I'm new to this forum, and this thread...so forgive me if I'm repeating. I read a new Identiy Theft scam these days, is calling hotels and randomly punching in a room number. The scammers say they're from the front desk and need to verify credit card information...for some reason it was declined (or something of that nature).

    It seems people are willingly giving their CC info. So if this happens, just hang up and call the front desk yourself.

    I heard about that, but not sure where if maybe on Yahoo news. Since it\'s pretty popular thing and it\'s worked, then one is to assume that many copycats will exist as well.

    The one thing that was suggested, was to tell them you will contact the office or go their to the bank in person. If it\'s something that can wait till you get back from your vacation then that\'s best thing to do. If it has to do wtih the front desk, then do that in person downstairs.

    I've worked at hotels and I know there are those at the front desk who will use a credit card number of a customer to get rooms for their friends.
