South Africa Airways offering free tickets to fly anywhere is a hoax

Published on : Wednesday, February 1, 2017

South African AirwaysSouth Africa Airways (SAA) is offering free tickets to fly anywhere. If this news ever hits you, beware. It is a hoax. The airways has warned its customers about a hoax survey which is prevalent on social media.

 

The scam is an open invitation to interested parties, inviting participants to tell 10 friends on WhatsApp about the South African Airways survey.

 

“SAA is neither conducting an online survey nor offering free flight tickets. We have no association whatsoever with this so-called survey. Free flight tickets are a luxury we cannot afford at this stage as the airline is focusing on restoring financial stability and is managing its costs to improve its performance,” SAA Spokesperson Tlali Tlali said Monday.

 

“Participants are requested to answer four survey-type questions and the steps include distributing or sharing the survey with ten friends. We strongly warn everybody to ignore this hoax survey and to avoid clicking on the link if they receive it,” said Tlali.

 

The national carrier said all of its promotional activities are uploaded on the airline’s website (www.flysaa.com) and will also appear on SAA official social media channels.

 

“There’s no telling what could happen to the devices of those who click on the link. It is better to heed the warning and exercise restraint than to be brave and be sorry.”
