Fake airline tickets on the rise

The number of fraudulent airline tickets ordered in the US has increased in recent months. More than $1 million in unauthorized tickets have been issued in the last few months, reports the Airline Reporting Corp., which settles transactions between the nation’s airlines and travel agents. It reported 82 incidents of unauthorized tickets ordered from August to November.
The face value of the fraudulent tickets in 2011 is more than $1 million, with the largest single incident valued at more than $77,000, according to ARC.
In contrast, Airline Reporting reported only 18 such incidents of fraudulent ticket orders in 2010.
ARC says phishing attacks on travel agents have increased accounting for the substantial rise.
