Scammers target Spring Break travelers

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (AP) -- College students and other spring break travelers are warned to watch out for scammers during their vacation.

The Better Business Bureau of Wisconsin is offering tips to avoid getting duped.

The BBB recommends booking a trip using a reliable travel agent.  The agency's background can be checked on the BBB's website.

It also says travelers should get details about the trip in writing.  It is best to use a credit card for payment and consider purchasing travel insurance.

The BBB cautions about accepting deals that are "too good to be true."  You should also be cautious when you are told you have won a trip.
