Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Complaints prevention team knows that if you are traveling for business or pleasure and are tired after a long day, you might decide that ordering a pizza and having it delivered to your hotel room would be a good idea. There are plenty of people who do this. The pizza places recognize the opportunity and will often distribute their menus to hotel rooms in the area. Many times these are not really pizza places, they are instead scam squads looking to get your money.
The scam is fairly simple. The menus are placed under the doors of the hotel room. The guests at the hotel assume that the hotel allowed these menus to be distributed and trusts that they are legitimate. When they call to order a pizza, everything seems normal. The scam artist on the other end of the phone takes the order and gathers information about where the pizza is to be delivered. Once they have all of that they ask for a credit card to pay for the pizza. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Complaints prevention team understands that this is where the scam begins.
Once you have given the scammer the credit card information, you will have become a victim. They will use that card to steal from you and other businesses. By the time you realize that there is no pizza being delivered, it is too late and your card will have been used.
This works for any type of delivery business. Food or flowers or anything else that a hotel guest might want can be a set up. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Complaints prevention team advises that you are very careful about the businesses that advertise in hotels and never give out credit card information over the phone.
