The Victoria Airport Authority (VAA) is warning airport customers and local residents about a scam involving phone calls from people claiming to be from the Victoria International Airport.
The scammers will call you and identify themselves as being representatives of the Victoria International Airport and say that you have won up to a $1000.00 towards your next trip. You simply only need to meet a couple of eligibility requirements and then you’re asked for personal financial information.
Please do not give out any personal information. We are investigating to see if we have any other options than to make this public warning however, it appears that we are not the only Canadian airport being affected and there is not much we can do to stop it. Most important to note is that the VAA would never solicit any of our customers in this way or ever request any confidential information.
