Voice Phishing (Vishing) Attack on Hotel Guests

Here is a discussion of a recent voice phishing or vishing attack against hotel guests. It is really more of a social engineering attack, but thats ok. Apparently someone calls into hotels late at night, poses as a hotel employee, and tries to trick guests into disclosing personal information, including name, credit card info, etc.

It doesn't seem like a very effective attack - most guests would be furious that they were woken up.
