Krystal Resort Cancun Warns Against Taxi Driver Detour Scam

The Krystal Resort Cancun scam watch team knows that there is a lot to see and do whenever you are on a vacation, and that hiring a taxi seems to be the best way to get to all the places that you want to see. However, the Krystal Resort Cancun scam watch team also wants travelers to be aware of the scam that they could fall victim too while hiring a taxi.

This scam commonly happens to travelers who hire taxi’s to take them to the tourist sites that they want to see. What will happen is when the guest tells the taxi where to take them, the diver will purposely take an alternative and much longer route to the site, or will take them to a different site that is further away. Taking this longer drive allows them to charge the rider much more in the end, and will often not even bring the traveler where they want to go.

Another common version of this scam is one where the taxi driver will intentionally take the guest to an attraction that they know is no longer open instead of warning the traveler that the attraction is inaccessible. They will again take the tourist via a longer route and then when the tourist finally arrives and finds out the attraction is closed, the driver is waiting to take them back home or to a far off attraction that they suggest.

The Krystal Resort Cancun scam watch team says that the best way to avoid this scam is by taking a different kind of transportation like a bus. You can also plan on visiting attractions that are nearby each other so that if one is closed you can walk to another nearby and make the trip out worthwhile.

Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team Suggests High Alert: Credit Card Restaurant Thieves

Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team suggests high alert: Credit Card restaurant thieves.   Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team says going out to eat is something that everyone should consider at least once in awhile traveling in Mexico.   There are many beautiful restaurants at the resort that are engaging and match the mystique and elegance of the Mexican landscape.

Visitors will enjoy a wide selection of foods that are native, fresh, and some that are quite unusual while traveling.  Many visitors will venture outside of the resort to explore the native countryside.  While traveling there are many different types of restaurants.   Some small, some more elegant and some rather informal.

Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team warns to be alert, there is one type of scam and fraud that is quite common in every country of the world, and it involves waiters or wait staffs that lift credit card information from consumers when they are paying their bill.  Often what happens is the unsuspecting traveler will provide their credit card as payment for a meal, while the waiter takes off with the credit card information.

Sometimes the wait staff or other representative has a hidden scanner they use to scan the credit card more than one time to charge the visitor extra for their meal, thereby ripping them off for various amounts of money’s, up to thousands of dollars.  They can use this data to create fake checks, to withdraw money from ATM’s and to perform other illegal transactions.

Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team says that the visitor will not know what has happened until they try to use their ATM or debit card later, and find out they have no money in their account.  To help prevent this type of fraud, it is important that you keep your credit card with you at all times.  Ask to have the payment made at your table, or bring your credit card with you to the front of a restaurant and watch as your bill is being paid.

Never let anyone walk off with your credit card unattended.   You should always have an alternative to this to protect your valuable credit card information.   Become your own scam awareness professional and stay on high alert and you will enjoy your vacation rather than become a victim of fraud or theft.
