PROJECT: HOTEL SCAMS

YOU MAY SHARE THIS PUBLIC DOCUMENT

 

Hotel scams, can take various forms that include fraudulent bookings, identity theft,

and unauthorised charges.

 
  • Fake Booking Websites:

    • Scammers may create fake hotel booking websites that mimic legitimate ones.

    • They lure unsuspecting travellers into making reservations and payments for non-existent accommodation.

    • To avoid this, always book directly through the hotel's official website or reputable booking platforms.

  • Phishing Emails:

    • Scammers may send phishing emails pretending to be from hotels, asking for personal information or payment details.

    • Be cautious of emails requesting sensitive information and always verify the sender's authenticity before responding or clicking on any links.

  • Room Switch Scams:

    • In some cases, travellers may arrive at their booked hotel only to be told that there was a mistake and they have been moved to another, usually lower-quality hotel.

    • Always double-check your reservation details and confirm directly with the hotel if any changes are made.

  • Unauthorised Charges:

    • Some hotels may add unexpected charges to your bill, such as inflated prices for minibar items or services you did not use.

    • Review your bill carefully before paying and dispute any charges that seem incorrect.

  • Wi-Fi Network Scams:

    • Scammers may set up fake Wi-Fi networks with names similar to legitimate ones offered by hotels.

    • Avoid connecting to unfamiliar networks and verify the correct network name with hotel staff before connecting.

  • Room Inspection Scams:

    • Fraudsters may pose as hotel staff and request entry into your room under the pretext of inspections or repairs.

    • Always verify the identity of anyone claiming to be hotel staff and refuse entry if you are unsure.

 

To avoid falling victim to hotel scams in South Africa or anywhere else:


  • Research the hotel and read reviews from previous guests to ensure its legitimacy and quality.

  • Book accommodation through reputable booking platforms or directly through the hotel's official website.

  • Be cautious of unsolicited communication requesting personal information or payment details.

  • Keep your valuables secure and use hotel safes when available.

  • Familiarise yourself with local scams and stay informed about common tactics used by fraudsters.


 

By staying vigilant and taking proactive measures, you can avoid falling victim to hotel scams

and enjoy a safe and enjoyable stay in South Africa.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: All potential clients need to be aware that owing to the nature of our work as specialist investigators there are people who have been caught on the wrong side of the law - who are trying to discredit me - Mike Bolhuis and my organisation Specialised Security Services - to get themselves off the hook. This retaliation happens on social media and creates doubt about our integrity and ability. Doubt created on social media platforms is both unwarranted and untrue. We strongly recommend that you make up your minds concerning me and our organisation only after considering all the factual information - to the exclusion of hearsay and assumptions. Furthermore, you are welcome to address your concerns directly with me should you still be unsatisfied with your conclusions. While the internet provides a lot of valuable information, it is also a platform that distributes a lot of false information. The distribution of false information, fake news, slander and hate speech constitutes a crime that can be prosecuted by law. Your own research discretion and discernment are imperative when choosing what and what not to believe.


STANDARD RULES APPLY: Upon appointment, we require a formal mandate with detailed instructions. Please take note that should you not make use of our services – you may not under any circumstance use my name or the name of my organisation as a means to achieve whatever end.
