A couple who claimed they had been ill while on holiday in Turkey has been, warned they are facing prison sentences for their fraudulent claims.
According to a media article, the couple sues the hotel and tour operators claiming they were bedridden with diarrhoea and vomiting. However, their lies were, uncovered when it was discovered they posted a host of pictures to Facebook which showed them drinking, eating and having a good time.
I cannot understand the stupidity of some people. If you are going to perpetrate a fraud against a well-known tour operator, common sense dictates you do not leave or post digital prints of yourself to a social media.
Of course, some people have tried these frauds and were successful. But each time hotels or tour operators have to pay out on claims; consumers feel the impact. To, recoup their losses, the companies passed on the cost to us.
Frankly, I do hope this couple is, sent to prison. Maybe it will act as a deterrent to others who like the idea to make fraudulent claims against tour operators. In my opinion, there are as many legitimate claims I am sure the organisations can do without false ones.
