A Facebook scam and online survey-scam fraudulently claims that Delta Air Lines is giving away 2 free tickets to everyone to celebrate their 88th anniversary. The title of the post says “Delta Airline is giving 2 free Tickets to EVERYONE! to celebrate 88th Anniversary!” However, this is not true; Delta Air Lines is not giving away 2 free tickets to celebrate their anniversary.
Delta Airline is giving 2 free Tickets to EVERYONE! to celebrate 88th Anniversary!
The scam utilizes fake Delta Air Facebook pages and websites in order to seem legit to some people. The scam asks their targets to share a post on Facebook, type “Thanks #Delta Airline!” in the comments field, and like a Facebook page associated with the scam or promoted by the scam.

The post will direct targets of the scam to a website such as deltairtickets2017.com that contains certain questions and instructions and text that says Congratulations! You won 2 Free tickets at Delta Airline!”
Once the steps are completed the target will then be directed to a new website such as surveysandpromotionsusa.com that contains a never-ending survey. The survey cannot be completed and is essentially designed to phish personal information the target manually submits (such as phone numbers, addresses, billing information, and more).
If you come across a post on Facebook that says “Delta Airline is giving 2 free Tickets to EVERYONE! to celebrate 88th Anniversary!” make sure to ignore it or tell your friend that it is a scam. Share this page to inform the person that they will not actually receive 2 free tickets.
