      Accomnews has received warnings of a group of German backpackers allegedly claiming to be journalists and having a go at trying to get free accommodation, tours, food and drink.

      It appears the group – using names like John Gerling, Ella Stagenberg and Ali Norbash – are travelling Australia allegedly trying to scam free trips saying they are writing for Kompact magazine in Germany.

      They may also use the names of other travel magazines like Spiegel, PRINZ and Stern.

          We have previously been offered contra deals -i.e advertising slots for free accommodation.
          While the deal is not bad value, ypou have to take into account that you cannot claim what you don’t pay for.

          However, if you believe there is some value to be had out of this. – Go for it!

          But remember, for every honest wheeler and dealer, there is 10 scammers.
