Facebook Scam - "Qantas Giving Out Free First Class Flights for the Rest of this Year"

Thousands of Facebook users were tricked in "liking", sharing or commenting on a fake Qantas Australia Airline Facebook page, which claimed that Qantas was giving away free first class flights for the rest of this year. The fake page has since been taken down by Facebook, but I have posted this article to help Facebook users beware of similar scams that are taken place every day on Facebook and the rest of the internet.
