Warning Fake airline websites

by

Fake airline websites distributed by social media

Scammers are using the branding of global airlines to lure users to fake websites and then encourage them to share links to the sites with friends. When a user clicks through to the sites they are prompted to answer a few simple questions and provide personal information to get free flights. Once they give away their name, email, phone, date of birth and address they are then told they will receive the flights, only once they ‘like’ and share the page on Facebook, spreading the fake sites to new victims. Cyber criminals were observed registering 95 fake websites in late March using the brands of  19 major airlines Worldwide
