Beware of free Emirates airline free ticket scam

Users of Social Media are been warned of a scam going around that promises to give away free airline tickets.

Scammers are sending out links to users online, enticing them to participate in an Emirates survey and get two free tickets in return.

“You have been selected to take part in our short survey to get two free Emirates tickets,” the  fake message reads. Users are then asked a series of questions. “Have you travelled by Emirates?” the first question reads.

Fraudulent links are a form of a phishing scheme that enables scammers to gain access into a user’s online device. The scheme works by inviting users to open a link and once open, users are giving scammers the opportunity to steal information, such as usernames, passwords and credit card details.

The UAE-based airline urged residents not to click on the link and share it with their friends.
