No, Jetstar is NOT Giving Everyone Two Free Plane Tickets

A post being shared on Facebook claims that Australian airline Jetstar is rewarding everyone with two free plane tickets as a means of celebrating 15 years of service.

The post, which features an image depicting a $1000 Jetstar voucher, urges you to click to claim your tickets now.

However, the post is fraudulent and has no connection to Jetstar.  The company is not giving away plane tickets as claimed.  Those who participate in the fake giveaway will never receive the promised tickets.

In fact, the post is a typical Facebook scam designed to trick you into first spamming your friends with the same fake giveaway and then divulging your personal information on suspect survey websites.

The survey sites will share your information with marketing companies who will subsequently inundate you with unwanted phone calls, text messages, emails, and junk mail.

Fake airline ticket promotions are very common on Facebook. We discuss such scams in more detail here.

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!
