In the United States annual losses from fraudsters in online hotel booking are 1.3 billion dollars.
One of the fraudulent trends is the growth of fake Internet companies, imitating hotel sites or booking systems, in order to attract customers.
About 15 million fraudulent bookings that occur every year cost Americans $ 1.3 billion. Most buyers look for at least seven to ten websites before booking a hotel. The scheme with the advent of fake sites for hotel booking is gaining huge scale, there are a large number of sites-clones.
Outwardly it is extremely difficult to distinguish such a site from the original, it is a double page. Copied design, copyrighted logos, and similar URLs are created. After the user visits this page and pays for the reservation, he falls into a double trap: his bank card data is compromised, and a service charge is taken, which will never be provided.
