Concord, NH - Attorney General John M. Formella issues a Consumer Alert warning New Hampshire residents about recent reports of fraudulent websites that appear to be associated with the TSA PreCheck Application Program.
TSA PreCheck allows low-risk and eligible passengers to apply for access to expedited security screening when traveling with participating airlines. When searching for information about TSA PreCheck online, fraudulent websites may appear which claim to allow consumers to register and pay for TSA PreCheck online. The fraudulent websites will prompt consumers to enter their personal information and will request payment in order to process the application.
Attorney General Formella offers the following tips to avoid falling victim to this scam:
If you or someone you know has fallen victim to a scam, report it to your local police department and the Consumer Protection and Antitrust Bureau of the Attorney General’s Office.
