How to avoid the ‘bad airline’ credit card scam

A new travel credit card scheme has hit the headlines after being described as the “most brazen” yet.

“This scam has been around for years and has no place on the internet,” a reader told TechCrunch.

The credit card fraudsters are claiming credit card rewards from airlines such as JetBlue, US Airways, Southwest, and American Airlines.

In a statement, JetBlue said: “We have a zero-tolerance policy towards card fraud and will take all appropriate steps to protect our customers.”

Southwest Airlines said it would not participate in the scheme.

“We do not offer travel credit cards, nor do we provide any rewards to customers who have already used our rewards cards,” a spokesperson told Techcrunch.

It’s a scam that uses the fraudulent travel card to book flights, hotels, and other items for the benefit of the cardholder.

There are a number of things you can do to avoid being swindled.

Check the details of the credit card before signing up.

If you have a valid credit card and the name is similar to the person signing up, you’re more likely to get scammed.

Don’t pay the card issuer.

If the card is issued by another credit card company, it’s a good idea to change it as soon as possible.

If you have to pay for something with a credit card, check with the credit provider to make sure it’s legitimate.
