Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team was formed to help members stay aware of the most common scams in the industry, and the team is now revealing how to avoid one of the newest and most popular ones, the “Wi-Fi Scam.”

Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team prides itself on staying up to date with all the most current and useful information related to travel scams. One that looks to be the biggest scam of 2013 is the unsecured Wi-Fi scam. Everyone these days is very dependent on the internet and travelers often end up using free wireless networks to surf the internet and maybe even check private personal information. What they may not realize is that scammers could be watching all of this so that they can later use the traveler’s information. Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team learned of this scam last year after many reports from tourists in Europe. However, the scam is happening all over the globe wherever there is free Wi-Fi.

When the vacationer’s plane lands at their destination they may immediately want to use these wireless connections to look at email or even check bank account and credit card information. When they are doing this, it all could be monitored by a scammer looking to take their information and use it maliciously.  This could make the unsuspecting travelers go through the beginning of their vacation not knowing that someone has access to their private data. Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team suggests that vacationers be very careful when they use and free public Wi-Fi hotspot. Unsecured ones should be avoided at all costs.

There are different options for wireless connections that allow the traveler to pay a fee for a secure connection. A secure connection is much safer to use but Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team recommends that travelers wait until they get to their hotel to check on any personal information. If travelers use these precautions they can enjoy themselves and not have to worry about someone accessing their sensitive information.

Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team concentrates on offering all the needed information to members so that they can safely enjoy their vacations without having to worry about scams. The dedication the Krystal Resorts Scam Prevention Team provides its members ensures that they make the most of their vacations in the safest ways possible and therefore improves their overall vacation experience.

Scam Alert & Awareness Tips by Krystal Resorts

The Krystal Resort scam prevention team is offering tips to help travelers avoid scam attempts while vacationing.

Krystal Resort knows that falling victim to a scam while on vacation is no fun. It can be costly and time consuming. Unfortunately, most scammers are successful because the victims don’t realize they’re being ripped-off until much later.

The Krystal Resort scam prevention team knows how frustrating it is when someone falls victim to hurtful schemes. Krystal wants its guests to know what to look for so they can avoid falling prey to these attacks.

Identity theft

Most places offer wireless Internet either for free or a cost. Often times, this scam happens by hackers that access information through insecure networks. The Krystal Resort scam prevention team encourages everyone to only use secure, password protected Wi-Fi and never access financial accounts in public places.

Protect personal information such as passwords and PINs by changing them often, and always look around before entering them to ensure no one is watching. Do not carry personal documents unless necessary, and ensure they are locked safely when not needed.

Helpless victim

This scam is incredibly popular on roads. A car appears to be disabled on the side of the road, or someone says they don’t have gas money at a gas station or that they just got mugged and need money to get home.The Krystal Resortscam prevention team suggests never giving someone money outright. Instead, offer to call for help, give money to the gas attendant for their gas or another helpful

solution.

In coordination with this scam, the “helpless victim” may offer an item in exchange for cash. This is typically something that may appear to be of value. In the end it turns out to be broken, a knock-off or stolen.

Here, let me get that

Another popular team scam is the bait and switch routine. The Krystal Resort scam prevention team warns vacationers to be aware if someone accidentally spills something on them, bumps into them or even knocks them down. This is usually a diversion for pick pockets – the scammer may offer to clean up the spill, help the victim up or even lend a hand to steady them, all the while nabbing wallets and other personal items.

Krystal Resort encourages travelers to take measures to prevent becoming a scam victim while on vacation. For details on booking a world-class vacation with Krystal Resort, visit http://www.krystalcancun.com/.
