For those looking to escape the wet weather for a sunny vacation, West Virginia’s Attorney General urges people to be cautious when making vacation plans.
Patrick Morrisey reminds people when making travel plans be careful of scammers. To avoid them, he said people should read reviews before booking anywhere.
Also, when paying for the expenses he said using credit cards can protect a person to dispute charges at a later time if they need. A big red flag could be if a place asked for someone to prepay on a debit card or through a money order.
