Hotel Food Delivery Scam
Keeping with the scam theme from last week (see Wednesday’s and Thursday’s), here’s another one to look out for. Don’t ever order food from a non-hotel menu that was slipped under your hotel room door because it’s most likely a scam. Believe it or not, there are thieves out there who create takeout flyers with very reasonable prices to entice you to call and order from them. When you call to order, they’ll ask for your credit card number and name—which they can then use for their own purchases.
Don’t order from menus slipped under your door. Instead, ask the front desk for takeout menus or look restaurants up online.
