BRITS booking their summer holidays are falling victim to online scams, according to latest reports.

One in five have been scammed, or nearly scammed, when booking their trip online.

According to security software firm McAfee, over a quarter (27 per cent) have been tricked online, only to find out when they turned up at their holiday rental.
