Better Business Bureau warns of Omaha travel agency scam

OMAHA - The Better Business Bureau - Nebraska has issued an alert to warn consumers about a business that calls itself Omaha Travel, an internet travel promotions company claiming to be located in Omaha. President of the BBB - Nebraska Jim Hegarty says they have received a number of complaints from consumers who responded to faxes offering travel and vacation deals.  Hegarty says they are not aware that any of the deals being offered are real and consumers who purchased packages are not getting their money back. He says those looking for travel packages should be on the lookout for heavily discounted offers, a company that only wants cash or wire transfer money for payment and one call - last chance deals.  Hegarty says they are also falsely claiming to be a BBB accredited business.
