Saya sekarang ni ada hobi baru.. :)
Kumpul kad hotel!
well, before this, saya tak tahu pun kita boleh mintak kad tersebut sebagai 'souvenir'.. ahaha..
kalau tahu, then dah lama saya start hobi ini... huhu :(
anyway, macam Hotel Cyberview Lodge ni..
cantik kan kad hotel nya..? :)
oh ya, recently saya ada terbaca satu thread di Forum saujanautama.net,
just wanna share with you all out there....
Very good information. Read and please pass it on ...
Never even thought about hotel key cards containing anything other than an access code for the room!
HOTEL KEY CARDS
Ever wonder what is on your magnetic key card?
a. Customer's name
B. Customer's partial home address
c. Hotel room number
d. Check-in date and out dates
e. Customer's credit card number and expiration date!
When you return them at the reception 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 reissues 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
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 at the front desk when you check out of the hotel.
They will not charge you for the card (it's illegal) and you'll be
sure you are not leaving behind a lot of valuable personal information on it that could be easily 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!
If you have a small magnet, pass it across the magnetic strip several
times. Then try it in the door, it will not work. It erases everything on the card.
