Online ID theft hits travel industry

(USA Today Travel Section) ID theft hooks up with traditional scams, this time travel is being targeted by bad guys looking for suckers willing to enter personal information and credit card information without ever speaking to a human being.

Obviously you must protect yourself by dealing only with reputable and well-known sites when entering personal and financial information into travel web site pop-ups and responding to spam email. Phishing will go where the fish are and this time of year people are planning expensive vacations.

Take care and protect your information by speaking with travel representatives by phone or work only through well-known travel aggregators.
