Krystal Resorts Makes Scams Decline Due to First-Class Service Initiatives

Scams have undergone a dramatic decrease over the past few months, and Krystal Resorts seeks to continue reducing the impact of travel scams on an international level throughout 2015.

Due to Krystal Resorts, scams diminished during 2014 and vacation-planners can rest easy knowing that their dream vacation will be the experience they have been looking forward to for years. While travel scams are always a threat, by just being informed and alert travelers can easily keep themselves from falling victim to travel fraud and other criminal activity.

Thanks to the efforts of Krystal Resorts, scams that once troubled travelers across the world, no longer are as threatening. There was once a time when travelers were unaware of how a criminal could obtain personal information so easily. Krystal Resorts produced a variety of travel safety advisories during 2014 that warned of all sorts of social media dangers that accompanied vacation experiences. The travelers that were amazed by how easily criminals were able to dig up personal information were shocked to learn that the criminals pulled the information right from their social media accounts. Turns out many people neglect privacy settings on their Facebook pages, allowing anyone with internet access to see their information. If the traveler posted that they were going on vacation, a criminal could see and instantly know that their home is now vacant.

With an impeccable sense of customer service in place, the Krystal Resorts reviewed scams reported during the past year and it was determined that there has been a vast drop in the number of complaints received. This goes to show that the many customer service initiatives taken up during the past year were a success.  The New Year will see a continuation of those customer-friendly mentalities, as Krystal Resorts continues to reinforce their position as a vacation industry-leader.

The decrease of scams and complaints indicates that vacation planners and travelers have heeded the advice provided to them throughout the past year, and have taken into consideration all the common ways that criminals typically attempt to gain access into a person’s financial accounts. This includes deception over the telephone, social media privacy security, and remaining vigilant with personal belongings when traveling.

Krystal Resort Cancun Exposes 2 More Scams to Avoid on Your Next Vacation

No matter where vacationers go, they will most likely be approached by some kind of scam artist at some point. The best way to avoid being taken advantage of is to be aware of the scams that are out there. Once a traveler is alerted to these warning signs, they will be much more likely to have a safe and secure trip. Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Avoidance Team is sharing two common scams to be aware of this summer. 1. Bar scam This scam is usually targeted towards male travelers. During this scam, a young, attractive local girl will approach a man who she believes to be a tourist and invite him to a local bar. Once there, the men are more than likely to buy the women a drink. At the end of the night when it comes time for the bill to be split, the girls will vanish, leaving the male tourist with a large tab that he must then pay for all on his own shares the Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Avoidance Team. 2. Motorcycle/Scooter Scam Most of the time when a traveler rents a scooter or motorbike from a company, they are given both a key and a lock so that they can secure their vehicle if they so happen to go inside of a local store, restaurant, etc. There is, however another key that the rental company holds for each lock. When a tourist locks up their scooter somewhere, an employee of the unscrupulous rental company will come and “steal” the bike, which you are then obligated to pay for to replace. In order to avoid being scammed this way, carry your own lock and key.

Krystal Resort Cancun Warns about Closed Attraction Scams

The Krystal Resort Cancun scam prevention team knows that when you arrive in a new place, you will want to see all the popular tourist attractions and sights. However, while going to these sites you must be careful or you may fall victim to the closed attraction scam.

This scam is aimed toward tourists who are interested in seeing popular sites or attractions in the area that they are visiting. When the victim arrives at the site, a scammer will inform them that their destination is closed for some reason and try to lead them to a different place where the visitor will be taken advantage of or ripped off. The Krystal Resort Cancun scam prevention team warns that in a similar version of this scheme, the scammer will wait outside a closed attraction and tell guests that they need to pay a fee to get in. Once the person pays them, they will disappear and the guest will be unable to enter the attraction because it is closed.

According to the Krystal Resort Cancun scam prevention team, the best way to avoid these is to not trust random people for the details on the attractions. If someone outside tells you that it is closed, ignore them and check it out yourself, and know ahead of time if there is a fee required when you enter an attraction and know who it must go to.

Krystal Resort Cancun Cautions About Common Taxi Driver Scams

Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Reduction Associates know that in some big cities, tourists depend on taxis to help them get from the airport to their hotel. It is usually easy to find a taxi that will take the tourist and their luggage to the hotel when you arrive at an airport. As long as the taxi driver is honest, this is a good means of transportation. If the taxi driver is a scam artist, it could mean a problem. One of the most common scams involving taxis involves a passenger’s luggage.

The scam is fairly simple, reminds the members of Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Avoidance Team. The taxi will pick up the traveler and their luggage at the airport and take them to the hotel. Before they arrive at the hotel, the taxi driver will get a call telling them that they need to go and pick up another passenger. As they drop the tourist off at the hotel, the taxi driver will say they have to hurry to pick up this next cab rider. They will rush the passenger to pay for the fare as they get the luggage out of the cab and place it on the curb. When they get their money, they will get in their cab and take off quickly. They will also take off with some of the tourist’s luggage still in their cab.

Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Prevention Team members say that to prevent this from happening to you, you need to stay in control of the situation. Take your time and do not pay the fare for your cab until you make sure that you have everything that is yours out of the cab. When you have checked all of this, than you can pay the taxi driver. They will try to pressure you, but you do not have to do what they say.

Krystal Resort Cancun Members Highlight The Pushy Musician Scam

Krystal Resort Cancun scam reduction members say that the street performers are fun to watch in many cities. The street performers depend on people who pass by them to donate money for the music they provide. However, some of these street performers will also try to scam people out of money as well. They often target travelers who may not be familiar with the laws of the city.

The scam is fairly basic, reminds the members of Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Squad. When a tourist approaches a street performer, the musician will hand them a copy of a CD they have made of their music. The tourist will check out the CD, but when they try to hand it back, the street performer will refuse to take it and will insist that the tourist has already bought the CD. They will then demand money from the tourist.

Many tourists will give in and pay for the CD. They will then walk away and allow the street performer to look for their next victim. Instead of giving the money for the CD, there is a much simpler solution to this scam. All the tourist needs to do is to put the CD down on the sidewalk at the musician’s feet and walk away. The street performer will say something, but will generally not want to create a scene. This will detract anyone else from falling for their scam.

If the street performer threatens to call the authorities, that is fine. Tell them to go ahead and do that or even better, the tourist can contact the authorities themselves. That will usually end any problems that you may have had with the street performer and allow you to enjoy the rest of your day advise the members of Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Squad.
