A warning has been issued to those booking holidays online, as it is revealed that British holidaymakers were conned out of £2.2m last year.
Many unsuspecting holiday makers arrived at their hotel only to find there was no existing booking and they had been conned by booking their holiday online.
Unfortunately this is not just a financial loss but a very distressing time for friends, couples and families who have been looking forward to their holiday only to become stranded and upset.
These online scams occur mostly in the summer and at Christmas time. Criminals set up fake websites for cheap plane tickets, holidays and hotels.
If you have been a victim of a holiday fraud we would advise you to contact the police, they may also be able to stop the perpetrators conning more people.
