Free tickets you don’t want

Qantas is not giving away free flights. Repeat. Qantas is not giving away free flights.

WA ScamNet has reported receiving a large number of shares for a web page claiming that Qantas is giving away two free first-class tickets for their 96th anniversary.

This is not true. It is a scam.

Any emails or webpages displaying, or have been identified as fake. The sites may no longer be active, but the content is still being shared and other sites may have sprung up in their place.

When visiting a Qantas site, you should always have a padlock displayed next on the left-hand-side of the URL in your browser address bar.

If you come across this message, don’t share it – you’ll only be putting others at risk of falling victim to this scam.

Visit the real Qantas website to see special offers, promotions and flight deals.
