I know this has been discussed in the past but by reading the thread I did not see a clear cut answer.
I booked through the Royal Playa Del Carmen website yesterday for a vacation coming up. Last night I received a email telling me I had to complete a Payment Authorization Form along with a copy of my passport or drivers license in order to complete the reservation. If I did not do so my trip would be in jeopardy.
I've traveled to Mexico countless times and to the Royal once before and have never had to do this. The representative tells me this in a new Mexican law.
This sounds EXTREMELY fishy to me and I am not going to complete the request. Is this as I am thinking, Another Timeshare Scam?
