Krystal Resort Reports that Scam Awareness is Key to Traveler Safety In 2015

Stamp for Scam alert to help vacationers in 2015

Krystal Resort Scam Prevention Team reports that scam awareness is the number one way to ensure that travelers have a safe and unforgettable 2015 vacation experience.

One of the reasons that travel scams are so prominent is that the criminals who run them are able to trick travelers who are unfamiliar with the customs of the areas they are visiting. According to Krystal Resort Scam Prevention Team, awareness is the key to reducing the number of travelers who fall victim to travel scams. The more travelers know about the ways that criminals are attempting to rip them off, the better prepared a traveler can be when they set out on vacation.

Uninterrupted relaxation is the staple of a great vacation. KIVC goes above and beyond to provide such an experience to each and every resort guest. Part of this first-class service comes with imparting the knowledge of international travel safety tips to ensure that travelers remain safe no matter where they travel to in the world. The Krystal Resort Scam Prevention Team provides the awareness tips below which are designed to protect travelers from theft.

Face to face communication is key in any transaction. According to Krystal Resort Scam Prevention Team, scam artists are much more likely to try and scam a traveler over the telephone or through the Internet. With this fact in mind, it is important that travelers conduct credit card transactions in person and only utilize ATMs that are in secure areas. Telephone scams and ATM skimming are two of the most well-known scams in the world, so travelers should always be on guard whenever they are utilizing their credit cards or giving out any financial information.

Criminals are always working on new ways to take advantage of travelers and according to the Krystal Resort Scam Prevention Team, even tech-savvy travelers are at risk. While some travelers enjoy completely eliminating electronic devices from their vacation experience, many travelers utilize their tablets, smart phones, and laptops for convenience. Whether they are looking up restaurant reviews or placing reservations, internet-connected devices have endless benefits for travelers. However, some criminals are taking advantage of travelers by hosting contaminated wireless networks. These networks may look like an official network provided by a resort or restaurant, but instead they are hosted by a criminal who has programmed malware or spyware to be installed into devices that connect to the bogus network. Always take a few moments to verify the validity of a wireless network with resort or restaurant staff before connecting.

Following these tips will allow travelers to have safe and fun travel no matter where they go. For more information on carefree holiday experiences visit http://www.kivc.com/index.html.

Krystal Resorts Cancun Provides Tips on How to Eliminate the Dangers of Travel Scams

Travel tips for countering travel scams

Krystal Resorts Cancun remains vigilant in the fight against travel scams and the criminals that facilitate these fraudulent practices.

Krystal Resorts Cancun stands for honesty and respect throughout the travel industry and has zero tolerance for individuals who threaten the integrity of the industry by running scams and other criminal activity. While it is difficult to find scam artists before the scams even take place, by equipping its members and other travelers with the necessary information, Krystal Resorts Cancun is doing its part to keep travelers aware of the latest travel scams. In the battle against scammers, the easiest way to gain the upper hand is to simply be alert and aware of the multiple ways that scammers are looking to take advantage of innocent travelers.

Krystal Resorts Cancun knows that travelers enjoy having a carefree mentality when enjoying their vacation experiences. However, travelers should never be too carefree, or they risk becoming the targets of a travel scam. Many con artists and scammers are adept at identifying a traveler who may not be paying enough attention to their surroundings. Typically speaking, bars and beaches are prime locations for these conmen, as they know their targets have more than likely had a couple drinks and may not be in the right state of mind to realize that they are being ripped off.

Krystal Resorts Cancun cautions travelers to always be aware of what is going on around them. If a night of drinking is planned, leave valuables behind at the resort. Or, perhaps the best plan is to leave anything of great value back home and avoid taking it on vacation to begin with. Scam artists are very good at snatching things from bags and pockets, so even the most sober of travelers can become a victim if they neglect to remain aware.

Scam artists not only target people physically, but digitally as well. Krystal Resorts Cancun points out those cyber criminals are just as dangerous as pickpockets when it comes to personal security. It is all too easy for criminals to setup fake Wi-Fi hotspots in an attempt to trick a traveler into connecting to it. Once the traveler connects their Smartphone or laptop to the compromised router, the hacker can easily gain access to the traveler’s personal information that they wish.

Krystal Resorts Cancun continues to maintain the best member service ratings in the industry, and hopes that all travelers will have a safe and enjoyable 2014 vacation experience this spring.
