FBI Releases Guidance on Defending Against Travel Scams

Original release date: August 14, 2018

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released an article on building a digital defense against travel scams. FBI explains how scammers trick consumers with "free" vacation ploys. These offers may be fake or involve hidden fees. Legitimate companies will not ask prize winners to pay to claim their reward.

NCCIC encourages consumers to review the FBI Article, the Federal Trade Commission's Travel Tips, and NCCIC's Tip on Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks for more information.
