Fraud Scam Offers Multi- Destination Vacation

Deal is No Deal


The Delta Police received information of yet another fraudulent scam being used to relieve you of your money and compromise your credit card(s).

In this scam the caller makes phone contact and indicates you have won a vacation trip to multiple destinations. Locations named include Cancun, Disneyland and Daytona Beach. All the “winner” pays is a registration fee of $194. This is where the caller transfers the phone to an associate who appears to be the “closer” and pressures you into participating and providing your visa number and security code. Locations and amounts of money indicated in this scam will possibly vary with every call but the elements of the scam may stay the same in this particular fraud scenario.

These scammers can come across as very legitimate but remember, if it sounds too good to be true is usually is.

The Delta Police remind citizens that it is never advisable to give your credit card or any personal or financial information over the phone or internet.

In this case, the complainant was astute and did not buy-in to the scam.
