Beware of "Air New Zealand Free Tickets" Facebook Scam

The Facebook post below which claims that Air New Zealand is giving away free tickets is a Facebook survey scam. The scam will attempt to trick potential victims into commenting on it, liking it, sharing it and completing surveys, by claiming that they have to do so in order for a chance of receiving one of the free airline tickets.

Please continue below.

But, the Facebook post is a fake and is not associated with Air New Zealand. It is only a scam to get Facebook users to comment on, "like" or share in order to spread the same scam to other Facebook users. Facebook users who have received the scam on their Facebook Wall or Timeline, are asked to report it to Facebook as spam.

The "Air New Zealand Free Tickets" Survey Scam

Air New Zealand is Giving Away 2 Free Tickets Scam

Always go to the legitimate Air New Zealand Facebook page to verify the authenticity of a promotion before taking part in it. Their Facebook page is located at:

Air New Zealand is aware of the scam. They have posted the following on their Facebook page to warn their customers:

"We are aware of a scam message being circulated asking you to take part in a survey to win flight tickets. This message is not from Air New Zealand and we advise anyone who receives this, not to engage."

Remember, by liking, commenting on, or sharing the scam, you are only helping to spread it to other Facebook users and making the scammers responsible for this, earn money. Scammers earn money when they make a page popular and are able to sell it to the highest bidder, along with the names and other public information of the persons who liked or shared the scam. I guess the last thing we want to do is to make these scammers rich by tricking you and others into commenting on, liking and sharing a Facebook post or website. So, if you have already liked, commented on, or shared this scam, please unlike, remove your comment and 'unshare' it.

Click here for instructions on how to remove things you have already posted on Facebook. And be careful, because scammers and spammers are tricking Facebook users into commenting on, sharing and liking things on Facebook.

After tricking Facebook users into doing the above-mentioned activities, the scam will then ask them to go to a fake Air New Zealand website to complete surveys. The website will ask Facebook users to complete surveys and share the same website in order to stand a chance of receiving free flights for one year, but this is a trick to get you to complete the surveys that the cybercriminals behind this scam will get paid for.
