Internet scammers con British holidaymakers out of £2.2m

British holidaymakers were conned out of £2.2m last year through internet-based scams, a report has shown.

Criminal groups have targeted online booking firms in order to swindle money from unsuspecting customers.

Many only discover they have been duped when they arrive at their accommodation and find no booking has been made.

The majority of those who had been defrauded paid by methods such as bank transfer or cash with no means of getting their money back.
