    Anyone heard of this hotel credit card scam?

    I've heard of rumors of scams in which hotel guests received calls from someone claiming to be from the front desk.

    These people call seeking credit card info claiming there was a problem or something like that.

    Just curious, anyone ever encounter something like this?

    If not, beware...just wanted to give warning.

    Never had that happen to me I did however 4 years ago get bumped in a hotel lobby didn't think anything about it intill I went back to my room some 8 hours later and discovered I no longer had my keycard went to front desk for a replacement and upon entering my hotel room found out all my luggage and my laptop had been stolen. Filled out a police report and notified front desk nothing ever came of it live and learn I guess.

    happened to my mother. she went to vacation in florida. but it wasn't the front desk who was calling. it was a scammer from some third party and they couldnt trace the calls. i thought it was suspiscious because she paid by check and they asked for her "card on file"

    I am amazed at how many of my friends still use a debit card for purchases. With all of the credit card scams and theft, a debit card is NEVER safe.
    I always recommend using AMEX.

    Good luck to all of us to stay safe and protected!
