“Get Free JetBlue Air Tickets” Facebook Survey Scam

by Brett M. Christensen

Update: February 2019

In early 2019, new versions of this ticket giveaway scam began hitting Facebook. You can read about the new versions here.

Outline

Circulating Facebook post claims that you can click to get two free tickets to fly anywhere courtesy of US-based airline JetBlue.

Analysis

The post is fraudulent. It is not associated with JetBlue in any way and those who participate have no chance whatsoever of winning any airlines tickets.

This is just one more version of an ongoing Facebook scam designed to trick you into supplying your personal information on scam survey websites. These survey sites will share your personal details with “site sponsors” and third-party marketing companies.

The scam posts also try to trick you into spamming all of your friends with the same fake giveaway via likes, shares, and comments.

This video from the Hoax-Slayer YouTube Channel discusses a similar survey scam attempt that promises participants the chance to win a Range Rover rather than JetBlue air tickets:

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!
