TORONTO, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Geo Holiday Club Scam Squad was established to assist members in educating themselves on the most current scams in the industry, and decreasing the possibility that they will be victims themselves. Thanks to support and dedication from this scam squad, more travelers than ever before are enjoying stress free vacations where becoming a scam victim is a thing of the past.

Geo Holiday Club Scam Squad is a department in a leading travel club that focuses on providing the most current scam information to travelers, like that of the front desk scam. There is no scam that has run more rampant in 2013 than the front desk scam because the front desk scam really catches guests off guard. When staying in a hotel guests feel that they are at their home away from home, so there is a feeling of safety and security. These guests receive calls in their rooms from the "Front Desk" asking to verify credit card information over the phone, but these are con artists. Anyone receiving questionable phone calls should take the time to go to the front desk to straighten out misunderstandings, and never give up confidential information over the phone.

Geo Holiday Club Scam Squad also warns against pickpockets that are walking the sidewalks in busy streets. The best way that individuals can avoid these con artists is to walk in good areas of town, travel in groups, and separate money and credit cards into several pockets. These pickoocketers are crafty, so most of the time they have stolen items before the traveler is even aware.

Travelers should also watch out for fake gold and gems being sold by sidewalk merchants. If a price seems too good to be true, then it probably is. The best way to buy authentic gold and other pieces of jewelry is through reputable sellers.

Geo Holiday Club Scam Squad also reminds travelers that they should watch out where they purchase designer purses and other items of clothing. It has become increasingly popular to sell counterfeit goods in other countries, which is why travelers should always purchase goods from verified to assure the receipt of genuine products.

Finally, this scam squad reminds travelers that cab drivers can easily take advantage of unsuspecting travelers by taking them off course. When taking a cab, make sure to use well-respected cab companies, to avoid unnecessary costs.

These are only a few of the tips that the Geo Holiday Club Scam Squad is providing to improve the success of member vacations.
