Authorities are warning of a hotel scam that seeks to steal credit card information from eclipse visitors.

Guests at three unidentified Casper area hotels have received phone calls from someone claiming to be from the front desk, authorities say. The caller seeks credit card information.

Officials say the calls are a scam and that hotels do not contact guests over the phone to resolve credit card issues.

Anyone who receives a questionable phone call should visit the hotel's front desk, authorities say.

Word of the scam comes as thousands of visitors begin arriving in Casper for Monday's total solar eclipse. City officials expect up to 35,000 visitors, and most area hotels have been sold out for months.
