Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Alerts Travelers about New Scam Attempts in 2014

Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club is providing travelers with tips to avoid some of the most common scam attempts affecting travelers today.

PUERTO PLATA, Dominican Republic, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club knows that being a step ahead of scam artists can be tricky sometimes, especially when traveling outside of the country. People are much more likely to be victims when in an unfamiliar destination. Criminals prey on those that may seem lost, distracted or unaware of their surroundings.

The Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club scam prevention team is sharing several signs for vacationers to look for. Safety is extremely important to this resort provider. They encourage guests to report any suspicious behavior immediately.

Scammers often seem like harmless vendors – offering products on the street, at markets and near high-traffic tourist spots. Be wary of deals that seem too good to be true. Vendors selling music, sunglasses, handbags or designer clothing at low prices might just be selling vacationers a dud. A common moneymaker is to sell stolen or knock off items as though they were legitimate merchandise. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club advises that buyers look closely for abnormalities and question why the price is so low.

Unfortunately, vacation destinations are hotspots for scammers trying to sell condos and vacation club memberships. There are many reputable vacation club providers and Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club warns travelers to research companies before committing to buying memberships. Asking questions about properties and requesting tours can go a long way towards weeding out the frauds.

Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club knows that identity theft can happen anywhere. Making sure that all Internet connections are secure and require passwords will help lower the risk of someone stealing personal information off of mobile devices and computers. Keep social security cards, passports, and credit cards in places that pickpockets will not be able to get to. Many stores sell packs that hide underneath clothes for that purpose. Also, the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club scam preventionteam recommends never giving out personal information to strangers such as birthdays, addresses etc.

Avoiding scams can be as easy as knowing what to look for and being aware of surroundings. Taking photos of street signs and landmarks will help eliminate getting lost. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club encourages all of their guests to map out destinations and have a plan if for some reason they get lost.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem.
