Grand Solmar Timeshare, a leading provider of luxury vacation accommodations, knows that every traveler hopes to have the vacation experience of their lifetime. With each and every trip they plan, they hope to create memories that will last a lifetime. Enjoying themselves in a new country that they have never been to before is often something that many people hope to accomplish in their lifetime.

But one of the top things that can ruin the vacation experience that travelers are hoping to create for themselves is running into a scam artist. In fact, the Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Avoidance Squad shares there are some common scams that has been happening all around Europe and other foreign countries more and more frequently in recent years that every traveler needs to be aware of, and it starts out with just a simple ask for help.

A beggar, usually an older or perhaps pregnant woman, will approach you and ask kindly for your assistance. They will have a heartfelt story, and will share it with you hoping for some of your money. But that’s when the scam starts. Although this doesn’t seem so bad, there is often an accomplice—a pickpocket waiting around the corner to see where you stash your wallet.

The Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Avoidance Squad says although it sounds harsh, sometimes helping out the unfortunate can lead to an issue like this. Scam artists try to play on people’s sympathies, so if you are in an area where you aren’t familiar or feel somewhat out of place, just simply apologize and state you don’t have any cash on you and walk away.
