New scam involves the lost-and-found at DIA

DENVER - A new email scam is out, warning that a payment has not been received for your "lost property" at Denver International Airport.

The scammers claim they need for you to submit credit card, or other personal information, immediately to facilitate a process that will result in your item being returned.

This scam is nothing more than an identity-theft scheme. Submitting any information to the thieves will result in an immediate personal-financial crisis.

People can find out if an item they lost has been found at DIA by visiting the website DIAlostandfound.com, DIA Director of Media Relations, Heath Montgomery, said in an interview with 9NEWS.

Do not enter your payment information to get your belongings returned from the airport

"DIA never asks for credit card or payment information to retrieve something," Montgomery said.
