Facebook Scam Promises ‘Two Free Tickets To All’ From JetBlue

by Brett M. Christensen

According to a post being shared on Facebook, US-based airline, JetBlue is giving everyone two free tickets as a way of celebrating the company’s 20th birthday. 

The post features a photograph depicting what appears to be two JetBlue flight tickets.

However, the post has no connection to JetBlue and nobody who participates will get any free tickets.

The post is yet another Facebook giveaway scam designed to trick people into divulging their personal details on suspect websites.

JetBlue is warning people about the scam via the following post on its official Facebook Page:

Flight ticket giveaway scams like this are very common on Facebook and have used the names of many well-known airlines around the world. If one hist your News Feed, do not click on it. and let the person who posted it know that the message is a scam.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
