You can go to prison for this fraud as for any other.
Here is a report from the Daily Mail ............... it is getting really bad now with people trying to scam the hotels / tour operators , but what is worse now is claims companies have set up in resorts telling tourists to make claims ....... false or otherwise .
Did get a bug about 15 years ago in Tenerife in a hotel in the North and at that time guests were falling like nine pins ........ but the company nor the hotel refused to take any blame . Saying instead it was brought to the hotel by a guest .
Stayed for a week and my wife and I were both ill , and we had only ate in the hotel up to the point of falling ill .
So sadly it does happen ..................... but the cry wolf brigade are going to destroy it for the rest of genuine holiday makers .
Its the new whip lash scam and its been reported that people are getting calls now to ask if they have been ill on holiday
Yeah saw this in the paper this morning. Scum, the lot of them, messing things up for everyone, not to mention giving us Brits a bad name in general. I hate when this kind of crap happens, People trying to earn an honest living being cheated by these cockroaches trying to get something for nothing. Disgusting is an understatement, anyone caught doing this should be punished harshly.
Jet 2 are using private investigators, here is an ITV clip showing how they operate abroad.
It does go on but the papers and tv are exaggerating it don't believe everything you read in the mail or express some hotels are using it to put prices up
years ago they used to call it Spanish tummy and you got on with it now people are just out to make a fast buck. Do they not realise it's so wrong and by doing this all British Will be all tarred with the one stick. Liars and cheats. I can understand why hotel owners would put up prices or bar Brits from the hotel.
Had a claim company call us at home. Safe to say I told the chap I'd had a lovely time at the hotel thank you very much and perhaps the should go forth and rethink his choice of employment lol
Saw today in the press that some tour companies are considering banning British holidaymakers from AI holidays because of this.
This scam has cost Hotel companies a lot of money..especially in Majorca..it spreads like wild fire..
