An employee was caught with a skimming device after hotel guests complained about fraudulent charges on their credit and debit cards.  The employee managed to get the information after cleaning the rooms of hotel guests. Hotel security was able to determine which employee had taken the credit card information by checking key card information for room activity.  A hidden camera in a mock room showed that the employee was checking the personal belongings of guests and using the skimmer on any cards that were found.
