The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said that fraudsters are suspected of targeting the Thomas Cook refund website.
The CAA said they have taken “urgent action” over the suspicious online activity and further verification checks have been added.
Dame Deirdre Hutton, who chairs the CAA said, “This morning we have taken urgent action in response to what we believe is attempted fraudulent activity in relation to refunds for Thomas Cook customers.
“If you have made a claim directly with us, then your claim is being processed and you do not need to take any action.”
“Our focus is on getting money back to the right people as soon as possible and combating fraud in every way possible.”
