Sure, we could all use a vacation again after these exhausting months, even if it was only for one day – but unfortunately some day tourists are apparently ready to take this break. Again “Nordkurier”Reports, there have been several cases of fraud in the entry into Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in the recent past.
The trick of the tricksters is not even stupid, but all the more brazen: Since daytime tourists are still not allowed to enter the state, the holiday tires simply book a hotel room or a holiday apartment online, which they then immediately cancel again. The supposed booking confirmation – the condition is that you are allowed to enter at all – is then used as a legitimation during checks.
Fines can increase
Corresponding, suspected cases, in which a booking was made and then immediately canceled, came according to a survey by the “Baltic Sea Hit Radio”At hotels in Stavenhagen, Gnoien, Grevesmühlen, Mecklenburg, Sievershagen and Pampow. The cheating immigrants are increasingly guests from Berlin, Brandenburg or Hamburg, as can be seen from the online bookings (which were then canceled).
Anyone who illegally enters Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania as a day tourist must already face a fine of between 150 and 2,000 euros – according to “Nordkurier”, however, the local regulatory authorities are now entitled to increase the fine in their own discretion in the event of a fraud being discovered .
