BREAKING Fraudsters target website refunding Thomas Cook customers

Fraudsters are suspected of targeting a website created to refund Thomas Cook customers, the Civil Aviation Authority has said.

The website was being used to allow Thomas Cook customers affected by the travel company's recent collapse to claim refunds.

The major Brit firm had fallen into administration last month, leaving thousands of holidaymakers and staff stranded abroad.

The Civil Aviation Authority set up a refunds process to allow more than 360,000 affected customers to get refunds.

It aims to get people their money back within 60 days, although fears have been raised in recent days on fraudsters trying to cash in.
