Don’t Fall for Free Airline Ticket Scams
Last Saturday, in the wake of Alaska Airlines placing the winning bid to purchase Virgin America, a “coupon” promising free Alaska Airlines tickets showed up on social media. Of course, it was a scam. As far as scams go, it was pretty well-done, but the fact is that airlines don’t give away free tickets in mass. Do you really think they would?
This particular scam is now apparently dead, but there are and will be others like it. Be smart and don’t fall for them. You’ll be happy you didn’t later.
