Grand Travel Worldwide Complaints Predicted to Decline Thanks to Increased Scam Awareness

Grand Travel Worldwide complaints seen throughout the industry on scam artist activity are expected to decline during Spring 2014 thanks to increased awareness.

 
PRLog - Apr. 9, 2014 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- According to Grand Travel Worldwide, complaints about travel scams and sketchy activity from locals will decline throughout 2014. The forecast comes from how Grand Travel and countless other travel industry brands are focusing on raising awareness on the latest travel scams that exist in the industry. These travel scams range from simple pickpocket thefts, to larger more complex rip-offs of individual's bank accounts or other personal information. The best way to avoid being targeted is to simply remain vigilant at all times.

In the early months of 2014, according to Grand Travel Worldwide, complaints from tourists about being the targets of pickpockets declined. Avoiding pickpockets is nothing new to seasoned tourists. The basics of keeping valuables safe has been brought up by nearly every travel agency: leave irreplaceable items at home, refrain from wearing or using expensive jewelry or accessories, and keep purses and wallets secure and in front of the traveler, at all times.

As technology continues to evolve, digital threats continue to evolve as well. As seen from the Grand Travel Worldwide complaints collected, many travelers report their personal information becomes compromised while they travel. The threat to digital security is a serious one. Not every country takes cyber security as seriously as the United States, and that can be a problem when travelers take their careless digital habits abroad. Travelers should refrain from distributing their credit card information over digital devices, and only utilize such information in person, with trusted brand names. Travelers should always check for card skimmers at any ATM they decide to use. Card skimmers are made to look very much like a regular ATM keyboard, so travelers should only utilize machines found inside secure locations like banks or stores.

Taking into consideration that the Grand Travel Worldwide complaints collected also talk about telephone call scams, travelers should be on the lookout for any suspicious activity that targets them through unsolicited telephone calls. No reputable business will ever repeatedly call a member and pester them for personal information needed in order to verify membership. These are typically scam artists fishing for personal information that they can use to get into an individual's bank account information.
