Yet another bogus “anniversary giveaway” is appearing on Facebook. This version falsely claims that Philippine Airlines is giving away flight tickets as a means of celebrating the company’s 28th anniversary.
Post is Fraudulent — No Flight Tickets are Being Given Away
The post has no connection to Philippine Airlines and those who participate have no chance whatsoever of winning free flight tickets or any other prize. And, given that Philippine Airlines commenced operations in 1941, the claim that the company is celebrating its 28th anniversary in 2017 is also untrue.
The post is a typical Facebook scam that is designed to trick you into first spamming your friends with the same fake giveaway and then supplying your personal information on scam survey websites.
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 air tickets:
