Avoid the Free Tickets Scams on Social Networks

We have seen an increase in the number of “free tickets” promos on our personal Facebook news feeds recently; 99% of the time these are scams designed to:

  • Capture your email so they can spam you with more scams
  • Install malware or viruses on your computer

Here’s an example for two “free business class” tickets from KLM Royal Dutch airlines — this is a scam!


Before you click on a promo and give away your information (we recommend this for all “free” promos) check the following:

  • Does the promotion sound or look fishy? (In this case, the URL is not the official KLM website).
  • Confirm with the providers’ official Facebook or Twitter account to see if there is an active promotion
  • Check the providers’ official website

Validate the promotion before clicking!
