Travel and leisure fraud

Traveling and partaking in leisure activities can be some of the most enjoyable experiences of your life. But if you're not careful of what you're doing, you could end up the victim of many forms of fraud.

For example, traveling typically requires you to sign a variety of agreements and contracts. When doing so, you give consent on many different fronts. Some of the most common types of travel agreements are associated with:

  • Renting a car
  • Booking a hotel
  • Making airline reservations

Even if you're in the habit of reading everything before you sign on the dotted line, it's easy to make a mistake when you're presented with a mound of paperwork. For example, do you ever really read through a car rental agreement before taking the keys?

You may also form contracts when partaking in leisure activities, such as attending a sports event. The next time you purchase a sports ticket, read the fine print on the back. There are many legal consequences (and protections) that you may be unaware of.

You do your best to protect against travel and leisure fraud, but it's easy to make an honest mistake when you're least expecting it. If this leads to trouble in the future, review the contract or agreement to better understand what went wrong.

Once you have all the applicable information in hand, learn more about your legal rights. There are both state and federal laws in place to protect consumers. You may have to take legal action against the negligent party, but it's better than getting taken advantage of.

Consumer fraud is everywhere, so keep your eyes open. If you do fall victim, however, make sure that you find out more about all your legal recourses.
