There is a simple way to avoid being the victim of a knock-off art salesman. Simply buy all your artwork from a genuine gallery, make sure that it is indeed an art gallery, and not some place made to look like a gallery.

Remember, if you find it on the street, leave it alone. Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team says that there is a reason why it is there, and not in a gallery.

As recognized by Krystal Resort scam avoidance team, most travelers are well aware of pickpockets who can operate anywhere in the world. Crowded areas and popular tourist areas are especially susceptible to such activities due to the volume of people and the ability for scammers to blend in with others. Simple techniques to distract travelers can cause personal items to be stolen without knowledge until it is too late. Some of the most common distractions are as follows:

  • Children—travelers with children can often cause distractions during times of distress. In many cases, this is enough for travelers to be distracted enough so that a pickpocket can come in and still items without drawing attention.
  • Dropping belongings—a person attempting to pickpocket can fake a fall and drop items on the ground. A traveler who comes forward to help can be occupied with the task while somebody else actually engages in pickpocketing.
  • Spilling drinks—some pickpockets can “accidentally” spill a drink on a travel. While helping to clean or dry off somebody’s clothes, this is an easier way for a pickpocket to gain access to personal belongings.
