UAE Flyers Warned of Free Ticket ScamUAE Flyers Warned of Free Ticket Scam

UAE residents have been warned of a social media scam 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, Gulf News reported.  “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. The UAE-based airline urged residents not to click on the link and share it with their friends. A spokesperson said an investigation into the scam has already begun. “Emirates has become aware of fraudulent websites purporting to offer free airline tickets to those who take an online survey,” the airline said in a statement sent to Gulf News.

“Emirates is investigating the source of the scam and will take appropriate legal action against the perpetrators.”
