FREE Cebu Pacific Ticket SCAM Spreads in Facebook, Again

A year ago or two, a scam offering a Cebu Pacific ticket spreads through Facebook. Now, the same scam is back and its spreading fast. At the time of writing, at least three of my Facebook friends have posted it, unintentionally enticing others into the scam.



How do I know it's a scam? Here are few simple signs.


1. It's too good to be true.

That's the simplest sign you should be aware of. If it seems too good to be true, it's most likely not true.

2. It's not in the official Cebu Pacific Website, Facebook Page, or Twitter.

If this is a legitimate promotion, this should've been posted in their official website, and social network pages. In this case, it's not.

3. The link is suspicious. 

As you can notice, the URL or link contains cebupacificair.com but it has additional names. This is a very common method to deceive unsuspecting people.


What to do when you encounter posts like this?

Once you realize it's a scam, DO NOT click the link. For most people, best thing to do is to leave it alone. For advanced users, you may try to report this to Facebook.

There are quite a number of cases similar to this. One example is free Pizza Hut scam. You can read the full story here.
