Travel To Go Scam Prevention Squad is a department that stays current on the most popular scams so that members can avoid them while on vacations, and the most rampant scam on 2013 is one that hits travelers in their own hotels rooms in the form of the “Front Desk Scam”.
Travel To Go Scam Prevention Team focuses on current scams so that members can avoid them while they are on vacation, and no scam is trickier than the front desk scam. When on vacation a hotel room is like a traveler’s home away from home, and this is where they feel the most secure. This is why vacationers go out of their way to book rooms that feel the safest, and will be the most comfortable for their stay away from home. This is why so many tourists fall victim to the front desk scam, because they are in a secure environment where they don’t feel the need to worry about protecting their personal information.
Travel To Go Scam Prevention Team heard about this front desk scam last year, but it has really become very popular in 2013. Travelers staying at hotels will receive calls from the “Front Desk” asking that they verify their credit card information, and these hotel guests will give all of their credit card information over the phone to con artists. The person calling the room really isn’t from the front desk, and guests have just give someone access to their accounts. This is a sad scam because so many travelers feel safe in their hotel rooms. This Scam Prevention Team recommends that if the front desk calls asking for sensitive information, travelers should take that info down to the front desk in person. More often than not travelers find that their information wasn’t needed at all, and that the person calling their room was located outside of the hotel. One can never be too careful while traveling, and vacationers should pay attention to this fact while they are hanging out inside their hotel rooms.
The Travel To Go Scam Prevention Team was developed so that members would be aware of current scams in the industry, so that they could be better prepared while on vacation. Through this program travelers are finding that their vacations are much more successful, with a diminished likelihood of falling victim to any prominent scams.
