Bulletin: RT credit card issues

It is being reported on several forums and loops that attendees of the Romantic Times (RT) convention have had trouble with credit card fraud--probably relating to use of the credit card at the Wyndham Hotel. If you did this you might want to go online and check your recent charges. A quick Google suggests that the Wyndham hotels have something of an ongoing issue with protecting credit card information from hackers? (that is, they aren't good at it--last year hackers are reported as getting card data from Wyndham hotels). This hotel chain might be one to avoid?

That particular Wyndham sucks ass in my opinion. They really blew it with my friend's reservation to Screamfest a few years back and we all ended up just leaving without going to the convention because of all the frustrations with the hotel.

I wanted to go to RT this year but finances prevented it. Knowing what hotel it was held at made me a little glad that I did miss it.

It sucks for the people who are victims of fraud, but after my experiences with the employees of that wretched hotel, I am not surprised one bit.
