Fake vacation, flight and car rental sites are out there.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — By air, by land, and even by the sea! You’ve seen friends and family on a trip and you’re ready to go. Me too. Before you book that trip, know what’s going on out there.
“We have reports of timeshare, travel, vacation scams and then the day comes and there’s no ticket and they’re out of a ton of money and there’s no flight,” said Lauran Blankenship of the BBB.
Fake vacations are becoming a thing. Websites that are made to look like AirBnB or booking sites or rental car companies are popping up. Plus, the Better Business Bureau warns scammers are creating look-a-like websites mimicking travel programs like TSA Pre-Check and Global Entry.
