BBB Warns Of Hotel Booking Scams For Holidays
As many people are planning Holiday travel the Better Business Bureau of Acadiana warns of hotel booking scams. The BBB says booking a hotel room may be convenient but scammers are designing look-alike websites that can steal your money and personal information as well as leave you in the cold when you arrive at your destination. According to the BBB last year more than 15 million hotel bookings happened on fake websites costing travelers $1.3 billion. The BBB advises you to use the hotel's website to book and be wary of email offerings of cheap rates.
