I have been travelling overseas for many years now and was taken aback when on recently booking a hotel on the Gilli Islands in Bali, they requested a photocopy of my credit card (front and back ) and a photocopy of my passport as well as my credit card details, to secure the booking. The information was to be faxed/scanned to them . I have already supplied my credit card details. The alarm bells started. Has anyone experienced this before as I never have? Does alarm bells sound for you too?
