A fresh campaign fake Southwest Airlines free ticket scam has made its way onto Facebook again, this time as an event invite spammed within the network.
Southwest Airlines is giving two tickets to any destination within the United States! To grab yours, just visit [URL here]
Based on the bit.ly data of the URL, it is highly likely that this scam has been going around since the 14th of this month.
Once users click the shortened URL, they are redirected to a page where, purportedly, they can claim their free two tickets to the US. The page claims that the offer is only available for a certain period, suggesting that interested parties must act now or else miss this opportunity.
Interested parties who think twice, however, may be spared from more shenanigans, which we will be touching in a few.
The above page loads when users click the Claim my tickets! button. It is a doorway page, basically, that opens to more scams when any of the links are accessed. Take note, however, that links redirect to various pages depending on user locations. Users might end up here-
Or, they might end up looking at this generic “search results” page related to online gaming.
Users are advised to ignore this Facebook event invite if you receive them and notify the creator of the invite that their post must be deleted.
