JetBlue Scam Flying Around Facebook
A scam involving JetBlue Airways is circulating around Facebook with the help of the lifestyle blog Jezebel.com.
Security experts at Sophos got wind of the scam on Nov. 9, noticing messages sent from Facebook friends with titles such as 2 Free JetBlue Airways Tickets, and Your Free Trip. The links have spread quickly , Sophos reported, because the women's lifestyle blog Jezebel.com sent the message to its more than 30,000 Facebook fans.
When users click on the supposed free ticket link, they are directed to a page showing the JetBlue logo, and asked to activate something called Facebook Connect, in order to obtain the tickets.
Sophos noticed a similar scam on Nov. 10 advertising four free tickets on Delta Air Lines.
Sophos urges those who notice the scam or become victims of it to remove references to it from your newsfeed, and revoke the right of rogue applications to access your profile.
