The hotel frond desk scam is here! Are you plan­ning to hit the road this sum­mer? Be cau­tious of this new, cun­ning scam that is tar­get­ing trav­el­ers world­wide! This shock­ing tac­tic involves a scam­mer pos­ing as a hotel clerk and call­ing unsus­pect­ing guests to trick them into giv­ing away their cred­it card infor­ma­tion.

In this video, we expose the alarm­ing details of this scam — how it works, why it’s so suc­cess­ful, and most impor­tant­ly, how to pro­tect your­self.

Scam­mers are exploit­ing a typ­i­cal trav­el­er’s trust in their accom­mo­da­tions. They make a call to a ran­dom room, explain­ing there’s been a com­put­er glitch and the hotel did­n’t man­age to store their cred­it card infor­ma­tion. The ‘clerk’ then asks for the guest’s details over the phone, set­ting the stage for a dev­as­tat­ing cred­it card fraud.
