WhatsApp free flights scam

Users of the online messaging service Whatsapp are being targeted by scammers pretending to offer them the chance to win two free flights on Emirates.

Prevention of Fraud in Travel (PROFIT) said users are invited to fill out a ‘fast survey’ in order to win the tickets on the Dubai-based carrier.

The link in the Whatsapp message appears to direct people to the Emirates’ website, but in fact it diverts them to a hoax site where they are asked a few questions in a phoney survey, which they are then told they must share with 10 other Whatsapp users to claim their prize.
