Watch out for this new scam.

Fraudsters are always devising new ways to swindle unsuspecting victims, and one of the latest is loyalty fraud.

Loyalty fraud often targets reward programs offered by airlines, credit cards and other businesses. This fraud is often limited to stealing rewards points and travel offers, but it can also extend to credit card information and identity theft.

Protect yourself by setting strong passwords for all of your program accounts and periodically changing them. It’s also a good idea to login to your accounts regularly to make sure everything is in order, and there hasn’t been any unusual activity. If you do notice something suspicious, contact the program manager immediately to report it.
