Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (PRWEB) August 04, 2014
Every year, thousands of travelers all around the world are taken advantage of by scam artists, thieves, and other criminals. As a travel industry brand that cares for the safety of all travelers, KIVC is doing its part to increase awareness of travel scams. The Krystal International Vacation Club Complaints Report discusses ways that travelers can stay ahead of criminals and avoid being targeted altogether.
The Krystal International Vacation Club Complaints Report states that one of the foremost ways that travelers can keep their belongings from being stolen is simply to leave them at home. Think twice while packing and only take things that are easily replaceable. This will not only make luggage much lighter but will greatly reduce the chances of items being stolen, along with eliminating the added stress that comes along with losing something like a laptop or expensive piece of jewelry. If an electronic device is necessary for the trip, consider packing an older model which has recently been wiped clean of personal information.
Another scam that the Krystal International Vacation Club Complaints Report warns travelers of is the fake police scam. This is a problem mainly for travelers in foreign countries. Travelers may be approached by an individual who claims to be an undercover police officer and presents a fake badge. The scam artists pretending to be police will claim that the traveler violated a law and has to pay a fine, right there, in cash. No real police officer would ever impose such a fine like that, and it is best for travelers to insist that this alleged police officer come to the real police station with them to sort out the fine. This will usually be enough to shake off the scammer. Report such activities to local authorities immediately.
When traveling this summer, the Krystal International Vacation Club Complaints Report highlights the need for travelers to be safe with their credit card usage. Criminals are skilled at making fraudulent ATM attachments that scan a credit card while the machine itself scans it. Travelers should always try and utilize machines in secure locations like in a bank or government building. An ATM is not the only way a criminal can gain access to credit card information; travelers should refrain from providing any credit card information over the telephone for any reason. Conduct all transactions in-person, and ensure that everything is correct on the receipt.
If travelers follow these tips while they are traveling, they will be able to avoid these common scams and have a complaint free travel experience. For more information visit http://www.kivc.com/index.html.
