Today, against my better judgement, I booked a hotel via otel.com which I found through trivago.
Long story short, the site looks pretty dodgy and I’ve not even received a confirmation email.
The terms were payment upon check in, but I’ve no faith the booking has even been made.
Luckily, the card I used was my Monzo, which I’ve reduced the balance down to near enough zero, so there’s no money to take, even if they try.
Their customer service seems to be based in Turkey and is pretty non existent.
My question ultimately, is if I order a new monzo card, will I get a new card number? That way I’ll just book the hotel via the hotel’s own website on my replacement monzo card, and there’s nothing these scammers can do in order to get the fraudulent money from me.
