easyjetEasyJet warned its Facebook users not to fall prey to the “free flights” scam that has gone viral on the social media platform.

 

 

The scam claims to offer two free tickets to everyone that participates in an online survey, in celebration of the airline’s 22nd anniversary. As the website visitor clicks the link, they are taken to a malware site which asks for the person’s Facebook details. The scam has rapidly spread as it stipulates that users must share the post in order to claim their free tickets. The post said there were just “332 remaining so hurry up!”

 

 

An EasyJet spokesperson said that EasyJet is aware of this fake Facebook competition and can confirm this is not a genuine EasyJet ticket giveaway. They warned the same on their official Facebook page stating that if there are any genuine offers and competitions, it will be hosted on EasyJet’s official Facebook page.

 

 

EasyJet said on its Facebook page: “We’ve been made aware of scam competition on Facebook. Please ignore this, as it’s not official. Only follow this account for updates, competitions and offers.”

 

 

A similar scam incident took place last week, where they were offering “free flights” with Ryanair in celebration of the airline’s 32nd anniversary, which however in reality is just 23 years old.
