Cyber security expert shares how to prevent summer travel scams


AUSTIN, Texas — The summer travel season is upon us and scammers are coming up with ways to steal your money. Cybersecurity experts believe these travel scams are going to continue to grow as more people get back to traveling, which could cause billions of dollars in losses from fraud.

This year’s new challenge is how ChatGPT has the potential to make travel season scams harder to detect.

"It's really leveled the playing field for scammers to leverage the technology to reduce the grammatical errors and spelling errors that we became accustomed to in the past," said Brian Ledbetter, a senior security strategist with GuidePoint Security.

Experts say ChatGPT may play a factor as a lot of folks are eager to capitalize on any cost savings they may be able to achieve with couponing and other discounts.
