Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Squad Offers Warnings About Email Hoaxes

Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Squad frequently hears concerns from customers who have received communication from suspicious email contacts. Email hoaxes are a common threat in the modern internet landscape and can cost unwitting victims large sums of money if they are not careful. Because of this, the Krystal Complaints board has chosen to offer suggestions on how to avoid complex or hazardous situations when browsing, particularly when viewing for vacations online.

Email is a common source of many scams, and the Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Squad warns against a recent scam involving friends or family becoming stranded in a foreign locale. The scam “spoofs” the email address of a contact from the recipient’s contact list, and therefore appears to have been sent by a personal acquaintance. The fraudulent email requests that they be wired money to this foreign location, and offers bank information that can be used to achieve this. This is a recent and very common scam, but can be easily resolved by speaking with the supposed “victim” over the phone or through another obvious method of communication. This should inform you that your friend or relative is well and in no danger that requires financial assistance.

There are other types of scams the Krystal Resort Cancun Scam Squad warns of. These scams typically involve offering a vacation package at extremely low rates, or even for no charge. While some of these emails may be provided from legitimate travel companies, their business practices are most likely extremely suspect. If the trip is real, it is very likely that the accommodations and other services provided are of poor quality or are simply not as described. If the trip was described as free, there will likely be some form of “service charge” or additional expense that was not previously mentioned. When this is complete, you will likely have spent more than you would have for a typical vacation, and for a much poorer quality experience. Krystal Resort recommends sticking with reputable and dependable locations to provide these vacations.
