Protecting yourself from common pickpocket scams

Grand Solmar Timeshare knows that one of the top things people worry about while traveling is holding on to their belongings. That’s why the Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Prevention Team has taken the time to educate people about one common scam that plays on these emotions that anyone can easily avoid.

An empty wallet that may look like it has been stolen will have all of the contents thrown on the ground or dumped out somewhere. When people walk past and see this, their first instinct is to check their own wallet to make sure it’s still there and safe.

Although you may want to ensure that is not in fact your wallet that has been torn apart or stolen on the ground, try to avoid the urge. Scammers will be waiting and looking on nearby to take note of where you reach to check for this. This sets you up to be the perfect target to be pickpocketed later since he will know exactly what he is looking for and where to find it.

Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Prevention Team knows that one of the easiest ways to avoid being scammed is to simply stay aware. Whenever you see something that seems out of place, the best course of action is to stop and think. It’s okay to take a minute to observe your surroundings. It’s better to do this than to act on impulse and make yourself the target of a pickpocket.
