LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Grand Travel Worldwide scam prevention team knows the importance of staying safe on vacation, and as experts in luxury vacations, they are very concerned for the safety and wellbeing of all travelers. Grand Travel Worldwide scam prevention team wants each and every person going on a summer vacation to be aware that there are scammers everywhere in the world that have tricks up their sleeves to take advantage of travelers. However, they also want to reassure travelers. They know that the easiest way to thwart scammers is to know their tricks and prevent them before they ever happen. To prepare travelers, Grand Travel Worldwide scam prevention team has created this list of common scams and how to prevent them.
- Fake merchandise: One of the most common scams in the world is one where a scammer tricks a tourist into believing that they are getting a great deal on an expensive object, such as jewelry or leather jackets, when really the item is a worthless fake. The easiest way to avoid this is to stay away from deals that are obviously too good to be true.
- Distractions: these come in a variety of forms, but always involve two scammers. One of the scammers will distract a tourist, and do their best to try and get the tourist to let go of their belongings, so that a second scammer can run by and pick up the belongings, or pick the tourist's pocket. This scam can also be avoided if the traveler is careful and keeps a close eye on their belongings at all times.
- Grab and go: Another common scam involves scammers willingly being given the travelers valuable items. This is most commonly when a scammer asks to borrow the phone of a tourist or when a tourists gives a camera to a local to take pictures. After this happens, the scammer will simply run away with the object, and never be seen again. It is very important that travelers do not give their belongings away to strangers willingly. If they do, they could become the next scam victim.
