Beware of Free Ocean Cruise Scam
By Terry Sebastian/Crystal Staley
Frankfort, KY - Attorney General Andy Beshear issued a scam alert today to help Kentuckians avoid being swindled by a free ocean cruise scam.
Kentuckians are reporting a phone call claiming they have won a free cruise. The caller, who often pretends to be a travel agent, says in order to accept the free cruise, the consumer must make a deposit or pay an upfront booking fee. The caller claims the deposit is "no risk" and is fully refundable.
Once the deposit is made, however, the phony agent makes-off with it and never provides the cruise.
"No matter the time of year, con artists are constantly trying to take advantage of travelers seeking an affordable vacation package, especially an ocean cruise," Beshear said. "Our core mission is to protect Kentucky families, especially senior citizens, from scams and con artists."
Beshear said not all cruise deals are a scam, and offers the following tips to help Kentuckians spot and avoid a scam.
