Unfortunately, more and more people are using ESAs as a way for them to take advantage of the system. Some would even show a fake esa letter just for the sole reason of not having to pay for additional fees during a flight or being allowed access to residential areas with a no pets/animals policy. There are also bogus sites or sources that claim that they issue valid letters. They scam people into buying them and then they’d end up being on the losing end of a stick.
Why It’s Important To Have A Valid Letter
It is absolutely necessary to obtain legitimate documents so that you won’t put yourself in a bind in the future. A valid letter contains all the essential information that is required for you to be able to take advantage of the benefits that this document can bring. It is imperative that you check the credentials of the mental health professional and make sure that he/she is licensed. If you are traveling to another area by plane, check the guidelines of the airline that you wish to take so that you will be able to see if your letter is valid. Also, provide the animal with an ESA vest or an ID so that it will be easier to identify.
