Don’t let scammers ruin your summer vacation. One way thieves prey on travelers is through front-desk fraud.
Hotel guests receive a call in the middle of the night, supposedly from the front desk. There’s a problem with your payment, the caller says, asking you to confirm your credit card number.
Only it’s not hotel staff calling (they’d wait until morning); it’s a scammer using a lobby phone.
Never give your account numbers in unsolicited calls; contact the front desk yourself.
Be a fraud fighter! If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
Report scams to local law enforcement. Contact the AARP Fraud Watch Network for more information on fraud prevention.
