GeoHoliday Club Complaint Resolution Management System is aware that there are many scam artists looking to take advantage of families planning their vacations. There are all sorts of scams out there attempting to trick a person into providing financial information, which allows the scam artist access to that person's financial accounts. GeoHoliday Club Complaint Resolution Management System has compiled a list of some of the more common scams that people should look out for when planning their vacation.
Vacation rental scams are typically found on online classified websites. The victim will search for rental property in the locations they are looking to vacation at. The scam artist will have already listed an attractive offer at a low price in an attempt to lure people in. When contact between the two parties is made, the scam artist will request that a deposit be made on the rental through a money transfer. Scam artists will utilize images and descriptions found on local real estate websites in order to appear legitimate from the start. However, when the vacationers arrive at the alleged rental property, they may find that the property is not even available for rent to absolutely no property at all.
GeoHoliday Club Complaint Resolution Management System points out another common scam type: Timeshare scams. The victims in these scams are lured in through a high-pressure sales pitch, sometimes at the resort itself, and promises of high-value "gifts" are made. After the seminar, the victim is asked to pay a "fee" for the delivery of the gift. When the gift arrives – if it even ever does – it is not typically what was promised and is an item of much less value. Other timeshare scams involve an individual receiving mail advertising for a timeshare sale. If the "sale" in invested in, the victim will probably discover that the timeshare company has mysteriously "gone out of business."
GeoHoliday Club Complaint Resolution Management System warns of fraudulent vacation packages as well. These scams involve the victim finding an advertisement for an incredible deal on a vacation package for a resort or cruise line. When the victim decides to buy into the offer, they typically receive no confirmation at all, or if they do, it is a bogus email receipt. Sometimes, the scam artist posing as a company will tell an individual that their credit card was declined, and a wire money transfer is required.
By being alert to these scams, GeoHoliday Club Complaint Resolution Management System knows that people planning their vacations will be much safer simply by being more aware.
