WestJet advises caution on airfare scam

WestJet has uncovered a scam involving a deeply discounted airfare offer for registrants of an upcoming conference in the U.S.

While doing routine checks of WestJet's credit card transactions, WestJet fraud investigators discovered a scam advertising return flights for up to 50 per cent lower than fares available through It's estimated as many as 100 conference registrants accepted the offer and paid for airfare only to discover that their ticket was invalid because it was purchased with other individuals' stolen credit cards.

WestJet has turned over information regarding this fraud scheme to law enforcement authorities for further investigation.
