Did you get a request to add a Facebook app for the chance to get 2 Free Southwest Airline tickets? If you answered yes and you’ve done the click through then know that you’ve been scammed! There are no free Southwest Airline tickets, instead you have now offered an unknown source access to your personal data and access to be able to post to your Facebook page as YOU!
The Better Business Bureau and many other websites have reported this ongoing Facebook Scam. Don’t fall prey and don’t give this app the ability to gather information about you. If you’re looking for free tickets you might want to channel that energy into something else. The airlines aren’t in a position to offer free tickets and if there are free tickets floating around on the net, it’s coming from companies that have purchased bulk seats from an airline.
Remember: If it looks too good to be true…it probably is.
