I recently sent an e-mail to a Rio hotel seeking a booking for two nights. I am attending a seminar arranged by another organisation and I simply filled out their form. I attached the form to my e-mail, as instructed.
The hotel responded saying they would only guarantee my booking if I faxed them a copy of my credit card (front and back) and my signature.
I am very reluctant to comply, for obvious reasons. Is this a scam or is this SOP for Brazilian hotels.
Appreciate any insight before I respond.
