Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Scam Protection Squad is aware that one of the traveling scams is currency scams. These scams are usually done by young boys. You might be approached by a boy or a collector who will ask you about your currency and then tell you that he is a fan of collecting coins or currency of different countries. He says that it’s his hobby to collect coins of other countries. He presents himself to be exceptionally knowledgeable and informative about coins and currency of other countries. In this way, you start feeling that you should help that guy and give him some money for his collection.
Actually, this is a way of attracting the travelers and getting money from them. You happily give money to the young guy thinking that you can help him, but actually it is not what you think. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Scam Protection Squad says this is another way of scamming. After getting money from you, the next thing he does, is selling those coins or currency to other tourists or travelers making an excuse that some travelers have paid them in Japanese Yen or Pounds. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Scam Protection Squad warns that this way of scamming may not be extremely harmful to you, but you must be aware of this and must be prepared whenever you travel abroad.
