SCAM ALERT: Fake Airfare Vouchers

Summer vacations are just around the corner. Remember big travel freebies, such as airfare, that sound too good to be true likely are.

The Better Business Bureau is warning us here in the east to be on the lookout for airline vouchers you get in the mail.

The vouchers will seem legitimate: two vouchers for round-trip tickets to anywhere in the country from US Airlines, American, or other airlines.

The BBB said to look for a postmark from Phoenix or Scottsdale, Arizona. You may see a city, but these vouchers do not list a return address.

The scammers are just after your personal information.

The BBB reminds you a true sweepstakes will not make the winner pay fees and that company definitely does not need your Social Security number or bank account information.
