    Pizza flyer scams still going strong in Orlando hotels

    There's a huge scam at the moment where people put flyers under your hotel door for pizzas or other fast food. All they do is steal your credit card information!!!!!

    I also saw this information the USA Today site.

    A pizza place should not need a 1-800 number for a local pizza. I always stick with the known places, unless I'm going out to try out a local favorite place.

    The big chains here in the states are Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, and Dominos.

    If it's questionable ask the front desk if they know of the place.

    Remember too, if you are staying on Disney property (at a Disney resort) there are limited outside delivery restaurants that are allowed on Property. I'd always check with the front desk to be safe before ordering something to be delivered.

    Otherwise, if off property you can always just check in a phone book (every resort will have one) under businesses for places that deliver. That way you won't fall prey to the unscrupulous criminals that seem to come up with something new every day.

    The couple resorts we have stayed at off property (Buena Vista Palace & Calypso Cay) have warnings about this in the room and at the front desks. I'm sure most others do as well. Another option is just to go pick up the pizza yourself.

    If I wasn't ordering from a well know establishment I wouldn't be giving out my CC#. I'd tell them I would pay in cash on delivery.
