Don’t get scammed this summer! Follow these 6 tips to stay safe.
1. Never pay for a “prize” vacation
If you’re asked to pay a small fee to claim a free vacation prize, you’re looking at a scam. A legitimate company will never ask winners to do that.
2. Use a credit card when traveling
A credit card offers you the most protection in case something goes wrong. You’ll be able to dispute unauthorized charges, and in most cases, reclaim your lost funds. Some cards even offer certain travel perks that help your trip go off without a hitch.
