New Hampshire AG: Beware of fraudulent airline security screening sites

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Airline passengers who apply for access to expedited security screening should be aware of fraudulent websites that appear to be associated with the Transportation Security Administration PreCheck Application Program, the New Hampshire attorney general’s office said Tuesday.

When searching for information about the program online, fraudulent websites may appear that claim to allow consumers to register and pay for the precheck. The websites will prompt consumers to enter their personal information and will request payment in order to process the application, the office said.

The program can be accessed through https://www.tsa.gov/precheck or be accomplished at https://universalenroll.dhs.gov.

Consumers applying for TSA PreCheck for the first time cannot pay online, but only in person at a TSA enrollment center.
