LAS VEGAS - March 24, 2014 - PRLog -- According totravelers that were targeted by scam artists, many complaints that Grand Travel Worldwide saw shared the sentiment that these scams are a serious threat to the travel industry as a whole. These scam artists have nothing to lose and everything to gain and many will go to great lengths to target unsuspecting vacationers. One popular tactic recently is that of disguising themselves as representatives from various travel industry brands. Under this guise, the scammer is free to harass vacation planners and the unsuspecting victim takes all their frustration out on the brand itself, not realizing they were targeted by a scammer.

This poses many problems for both travelers and vacation industry brands. The Grand Travel Worldwide complaints collected from travelers clearly show that the effects of the scam directly result in the loss of trust between travelers and brands in the travel industry. Some travelers may be unaware of the fact that scam artists are posing as official representatives, and so will post online or tell their family and friends of the negative interactions between themselves and the supposed brand. The only way to combat this threat to the industry is increased awareness. By alerting travelers and vacation planners to the tactics of scam artists, the travel industry and the brands affected by the scammers can work to recover their reputations.

The Grand Travel Worldwide complaints from travelers show the need for scam avoidance advice. One of the most straightforward bits of advice is to simply disregard any unsolicited telephone calls from supposed travel agencies, resorts, or other travel industry brands. Never distribute personal information, let alone financial information, over the telephone to any unsolicited caller. Always call the company back through a legitimate number, as found on the brand's website or through a trustworthy travel guide. If a scammer becomes a nuisance it is best to contact the proper authorities and let them handle the situation from there.

In the future, with the continued support and trust of travelers from all around the world, Grand Travel Worldwide knows that the travel industry can work towards ridding the industry of scam artists and those who target innocent vacationers.  For more scam avoidance advice and tips on how to stay safe while traveling, contact Grand Travel Worldwide today.
