While staying at the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, an interesting announcement on the resort TV caught our attention.
We recently broke the story that Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests had been getting scammed while staying at the hotels. Guests were asked to confirm their address and credit card information over the phone. Shortly after, fraudulent charges take place on these guests’ credit cards.
While watching the TV in our cabin today, the above screen appeared. In what can be viewed as a tacit acknowledgment of the credit card scam we reported earlier this week, it appears Disney is now warning guests about revealing personal information and is now providing personal security tips.
The tips include:
- Do not give your credit card information if you did not initiate the call. Use caution when disclosing your credit card number over the phone.
- Always keep your credit card numbers and receipts secure and out of public view.
- Keep your Resort room doors locked at all times.
