The "Get 5 Free Tickets of any Movie at Vue Cinemas" Facebook Scam

Get 5 FREE Tickets of any Movie at VUE CINEMAS to celebrate 15th Anniversary

Get 5 FREE Tickets of any Movie at VUE CINEMAS to celebrate 15th Anniversary!;

www.vuecinemas.com-freecinema.com

The Vue Cinemas scam was created by cyber-criminals to steal their victims’ personal information and trick them into sharing the same scam with their friends, by claiming that the potential victims need to do so in order to receive the so-called 5 free tickets. But, sharing the scam will only spread it to other potential victims, which is what the cyber-criminals behind the scam want.

The scam may also take victims to dangerous websites, where their computers may get infected with a virus, Trojan horse or some other malware. So, this is why it is important to take precaution before clicking on links in email messages or on social media websites.

Also, internet users who have already submitted their personal information on the fake Vue Cinemas website will receive spam and malicious email messages, which will attempt to trick them into sending their money, in order to receive some form of prize, or infect their computers with viruses, Trojan horse or other malicious and fake software.

Remember, to tell if Vue Cinemas vouchers, coupons, gift cards or a promotions are authentic, please ask them at their legitimate Facebook page located at:

    Hi, I have actually sent through my personal information. It seemed wrong but the advert was sent by a friend I trust so I didn't thinkabout scam until it was too late.

    Am I safe in that the only thing my personal info would be used is for email spam and spam calls? I am really worried if they could use the details for anything else and don't know what to do!!!

    Thank you!

    Someone sent the link to me in a messenger group. I clicked on it out of curiosity. I answered the multiple choice questions but looked at the URL and went no further. I clicked off it and removed myself from the group. This was done via my iPhone. Are my personal details safe from these cyber criminals? Thanks.

      Once you didn't send your personal information, you are ok. If you did, the scammers will contact you and attempt to scam you using the information that you have sent, therefore, just be careful next time.
