The phishing scam is most common on the Internet and many people fall into the trap. This time again, a free air ticket phishing scam is doing rounds on the Internet. A WhatsApp message has been popping up on social media sites which claims that Jet Airways is giving two free tickets to everyone in a bid to celebrate their 25 years of anniversary.
However, it turns out a fake message. Jet Airways also issued a statement in which they clearly mentioned that it is a fake alert and warned people to not fall into the trap. “There’s a fake link being circulated regarding ticket giveaways for our 25th Anniversary. This is not an official contest/giveaway and we advise caution. Genuine contests & giveaways are hosted only on our verified social media accounts, indicated with a blue tick,” the airline said.
The free air ticket scam has gone viral on WhatsApp and Facebook and many people have fallen prey to the phishing scam.
