Hotel scam

"There’s no way, with my background in news, that I would EVER get caught up in a scam. I’ve heard all the stories, or so I thought, but this one was new to me. It happened when my family and I went out of town for our kids’ soccer tournament. It didn’t even dawn on me that I was in the process of being “had” until it was almost over. It was the last thing I expected to deal with at the hotel. They almost got me, don’t let them get you!" – Lynda Loveland / MIX 101.5 Morning Show host and former WRAL-TV News anchor
