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.

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.

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.
