Police say scammers are calling hotel rooms saying you've been over billed and taking credit card information.

Owen Sound police say there's a scam targeting people staying in hotel rooms.

Police say on Wednesday,  September 11th, they were contacted by a local hotel about fraudsters calling and asking for room numbers.

Police say once transferred, scammers would tell the occupants they were over-billed, and ask the occupant for their credit card number for a refund.  

According to police, at this point it looks like no one has fallen for the scam.
