Australian Travel agencies warn of million-dollar scam targeting Chinese tourists

Major Australian tourist attractions are being attacked by an organized crime syndicate using stolen credit cards and the popular Chinese social media portal WeChat to run a multi-million dollar bill fraud. The scam has recently been discovered by operators of a small number of major tourist attractions in Victoria and NSW. However, the main figures in the tourism industry fear that the size and magnitude of ticket fraud are immense.

Australian Travel agencies warn of million-dollar scam targeting Chinese tourists

In Victoria, nine major tourism companies in recent months had to return almost $ 400,000 to legitimate credit card owners used by the union to purchase tickets for attractions such as Eureka Skydeck, Sovereign Hill in Ballarat and nearby Peninsula Hot Springs Of Rye.

"Clearly this is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg. I guess we're talking about millions of dollars nationwide," warned the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mark Stone, who also heads the state's tourism industry board And wants the members affected by the scam to contact the police. The scam has also hit Sydney's main tourist attractions, such as the BridgeClimb Harbor Bridge, which had to make tens of thousands of dollars in credit card repayments late last year. BridgeClimb CFO Max Futeran said, "I think this is a multi-million dollar problem ... there are a number of people in the industry who do not know this has been happening."

He said that tourism companies across the country should be reviewing their recent financial records to determine if there has been a recent increase in credit card "back-up charge."

The media has learned that the crime syndicate running Tourism Ticket Timing is recruiting Chinese students located in Australia to work for them as "agents" to promote discounted tickets via their own WeChat Networks. The scam includes tourist attraction tickets purchased with stolen credit cards that are sold at discounted prices to Chinese tourists not caught off guard through the WeChat social media platform, which is used by about 800 million Chinese.

The revelation of the tourism scam occurs as Australian law enforcement agencies are examining the organized subversion of Australia's visa system by criminal groups abroad to facilitate large-scale fraud. Police sources say that crime groups have sent credit card frauds to Australia by working with corruption in education and immigration agents that help scammers obtain student visas

Great ! Chinese tourists’ manners improving

Nearly 50% of respondents from major overseas tourist destinations in a recent survey said that Chinese outbound tourists have improved their manners over the past five years.

China's National Tourism Administration released a report on the survey Wednesday. The survey interviewed 3,650 people from 10 tourist destinations abroad - the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Taiwan - on the image and behavior of outgoing Chinese tourists .

Results showed that nearly half of overseas respondents said they have witnessed an improvement in Chinese tourists' ways in the last five years. Interviewees from Indonesia, France, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States gave positive feedback on the behavior of Chinese tourists.
However, neighboring countries such as Japan did not, with only 18.9 percent of Japanese respondents saying they had witnessed an improvement. When asked to classify the image of Chinese tourists from one to 10, the interviewees abroad gave an average rating of 5.2.

The world's largest outbound tourism market

China has been the world's largest outbound tourism market for the past four years. During the last seven days of the Spring Festival, more than 6.15 million visits were made by tourists from mainland China to overseas destinations. However, the bad behavior of Chinese tourists has also led to criticism of many overseas tourist destinations.
The CNTA report said that "although there is no difference in the way Chinese and foreign respondents define bad behavior, the overall ranking of Chinese outbound tourists is not so high."
Guo Lufang, professor of tourism and city management at Zhejiang Gongshang University, said many Chinese tourists do not have much experience traveling abroad or knowledge about diversified cultures.

Chinese outbound tourists 

"Sometimes Chinese tourists do not realize that their behavior is not appropriate in certain cultural settings," Guo said. "Some act the same way when they are abroad as at home."
Liu Simin, vice president of tourism for the Chinese Society for Future Studies, said that in addition to tightening government or industry regulations on this issue, it is also necessary to educate people about good manners from an early age, Foundations for education in civilized tourism.

Donald Trump Policy about Chinese Tourists

Why Chinese tourist are so "desirable" ? 

What makes Chinese tourists so desirable is not their number, but also their propensity to spend. "With average spending per person per trip of more than $ 6,500, Chinese visitors are the biggest spenders in the US, no barriers," according to Michael Merner, founder and president of AVIAREPS Asia - China Offices . "The Chinese middle and upper classes spend 19% of their annual income on foreign travel, a percentage never seen in other markets." Experts travel on both sides of the Pacific and US leadership towards a nationalist program influencing the upward trend of visitor arrivals. According to Li Han, vice president of UTour China, one of the main Chinese travel agencies that send Chinese tourists to the United States, "in my opinion there is no impact for now" . In 2016, through UTour doubled and I believe this growth is incredible in Chinese travel to the United States will continue. "

The Vice President of Communications for Visit Seattle is also optimistic. "There is steam at full steam. Unless there is a major policy change, this engine can not be stopped. "

So what interrupted the influx of Chinese visitors to the United States? Our committee looked at two possible developments: "Any deterioration in US security or major changes in American visa policy have an impact on Chinese travel to the United States," Han said.

US visa policy 

The US visa policy is indeed a yellow flag at the moment. In the past, Chinese visa holders did not need to go through another consular interview until they applied for a new visa within four years of the expiry of their previous visa. However, for some US visa holders in China, this window has been shortened to 12 months and if Chinese visitors reapply more than 12 months after the expiration of a previous visa they will need to resume the interview process. On also fears that the United States will shorten the length of stay of Chinese on certain visas to six months. This has a major impact on length of stay in China, particularly in "visiting friends and relatives" and those who are traveling longer.

Trump Policiy 

Donald Trump has been at the Oval Office for less than a month. And the stunning series of executive orders, remarks out of the headlines and diplomatic exchanges at Washington's initiative and world leaders guessing what is to come.

But so far, there is a group that shows remarkable resilience in their positive views towards the US: Chinese tourists. They book trips to the United States in record numbers and show no signs of slackening. Over the past decade, Chinese visitors have increased almost 10 times, from 320,000 visitors in 2006 to more than three million last year. According to the US Department of Commerce, the number reaches 5.7 million arrivals by 2021 and make China the largest market for foreign visitors to the United States
