Travellers being encouraged to fake illness, says ABTA

A poll carried out for ABTA suggests that 19% of all holidaymakers may have been approached by a claims management company on their return home.

They are told that there is money waiting for them if they file a claim.

On average, successful claimants get payouts of just over £2,000 each.

As many as nine million Britons have been approached to make such sickness claims, the poll suggests.

I read about the story and seen in on TV...
