A warning has been issued as a surge in fraudsters targeting upcoming sporting events involving overseas travel has become known. Fans attempting to get flights and accommodation for the Rugby World Cup Finals in France from September 8th are being urged to avoid getting scammed as demand soars to visit the country.
