Two U.S. senators called on the Federal Trade Commission in a letter Thursday to do more to protect American consumers from travel scams.
Responding to reports that there has been an increase in travel- and tourism-related fraud — such as scammers posing as travel advisors or creating fake airline websites to sell counterfeit tickets — Sen.
