Too good to be true
The other day my wife & I were trying to see the best fare available for our international vacation!! We stumbled upon a site that offered a good deal!! The prices were unbelievably low.. I almost booked the ticket when my wife said we needed to check out the authenticity of the site (women are smart!!) we checked the details & cross-checked it with the airlines, the website was a sham & stole credit card information!! My wife’s smartness saved us!!

Beware Internet ticket fraudsters!
You especially need to beware Internet Ticket Fraud when there’s a big musical concert or sporting event round the corner…. that’s when the fraudsters really become very active…. I still remember how many people were duped when there was a rock concert in town.. some started yelling…. some shed copious tears.. but it was of no avail… their tickets were fake
