Attorney General Todd Rokita reminds Hoosiers to be alert while booking summer vacations

Caution to avoid crafty scammers.


Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita warns Hoosiers to avoid scams as summer heats up. If you are preparing for an out-of-town trip, make sure your time away is as safe as possible by using caution to avoid crafty scammers.   

  • Avoid high-pressure sales pitches before you book a trip.  
  • Be extra cautious when booking through an unfamiliar company. Check the Better Business Bureau ratings and research the name online to see if there are any allegations of scams.  
  • Read the fine print in the contract before you sign it. It will tell you about the conditions under which the operator can change or cancel the trip and the rules and penalties for cancellation.  
  • Pay by credit card. It gives you more protection than cash or checks.  
  • Use good judgment when sharing about your trip on social media. Consider changing your online privacy settings while on your trip.  
  • Lock your valuables, including personal information, in your trunk or hotel safe.
