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.
