Beware: Hotel Scam

Here’s one tip to remember when staying in a hotel: Beware of phone calls pretending to come from the front desk.

The AmoMama website reports on a scam in which someone calls to tell a traveler that the front desk has lost their credit card information, or that the card has been declined.

If that happens, don’t automatically read your credit card number to the caller. Instead, hang up and go down to the front desk. If it’s legitimate, you’ll know right away. Otherwise, you'll protect yourself from a credit card thief.
