Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Prevention Team knows how easy it is to fall for a scam, especially when on vacation. Tourists are usually thinking of how to get to places, where the best place to eat is, and the next sight they will see. The last thing on their mind is to watch out for supposedly nice locals who offer up help to a tourist, while in reality it is a scam. One way to be aware of these scams is to simply not take anything from anyone. Although they may claim it is free, chances are that it is not.
When on vacation and strolling down the street through an area full of bustling people, tourists are likely to be subjected to a variety of scams. One popular dupe is that someone will come up from behind and ask if the ring that seems to be dropped belonged to the person. In this interaction, tourists are completely caught off guard because they clearly did not drop a ring. However, after talking to this apparently nice stranger, the scammer suggests that the person takes the ring anyway. After all, it appears to be real gold and of great quality, and doesn’t fit the scammer quite right. Once the tourist agrees to take the ring, the scammer then claims that they should be compensated quite nicely for the great find.
Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Avoidance Squad recommends avoiding this scam by simply not interacting with the person. Unless the ring truly belongs to them, keep walking and don’t fall into the trap of the “dropped ring.”
