> Very important for all of our frequent travelers.
> This is some interesting information for all you travelers.
> Subject: Hotel key cards
> The following is a little tidbit I picked up from the left coast that you may want to pass on to employees:
> Southern California law enforcement professionals assigned to detect new threats to personal security issues recently discovered what type of information is embedded in the credit card type hotel room keys used throughout the industry.
> Although room keys differ from hotel to hotel, a key obtained from the "Double Tree" chain that was being used for a regional Identity Theft Presentation was found to contain the following the information:
> a. Customers (your) name
> b. Customers partial home address
> c. Hotel room number
> d. Check in date and check out date
> e. Customer's (your) credit card number and expiration date!
> When you turn them in to the front desk your personal information is there for any employee to access by simply scanning the card in the hotel scanner.
> An employee can take a hand full of cards home and using a scanning device, access the information onto a laptop computer and go shopping at your expense.
> Simply put, hotels do not erase the information on these cards until an employee re-issues the card to the next hotel guest.
> At that time, the new guest's information is electronically "overwritten" on the card and the previous guest's information is erased in the
overwriting process. But until the card is rewritten for the next guest, it usually is kept in a drawer at the front desk with YOUR INFORMATION ON IT!!!!
> The bottom line is: Keep the cards, take them home with you, or destroy them. NEVER leave them behind in the room or room wastebasket, and NEVER turn them in to the front desk when you check out of a room. They will not charge you for the card (it's illegal) and you'll be sure you are not leaving a lot of valuable personal lifted off with any simple scanning device card reader.
> For the same reason, if you arrive at the airport and discover you still have the card key in your pocket, do not toss it in an airport trash basket. Take it home and destroy it by cutting it up, especially through the electronic information strip!
> Information courtesy of:
> Sergeant K. Jorge, Detective Sergeant, Pasadena
> Police Department
