In the end it all depends on what kind of vacation you are looking for; If you’re looking for an all-inclusive and don’t have any interest in leaving the resort’s premises, then feel free to bring some jewelry and name-brands. However, all that changes the second you leave the resorts confinement, then you become a flashy dingbat who is just waiting to get robbed or worse —kidnapped and used for ransom.
With today’s world getting crazier by the second, it’s hard to believe that traveling can now go hand-in-hand with gambling. The most important thing to do to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones is to never visit a new land without doing your homework first.

Once you’ve met your quota for the day you will be released. There is the fake kidnapping, where someone will ask you to sign a petition— only to access your information and then they will call your home and pretend you’ve been taken. There is the break-in kidnapping, where you will believe to be safe and sound in your hotel room, and then someone will bust in and steal on of your kids.
