Of all the types of scams during the holidays, this may be the dumbest or the smartest. Just think, who does not want to save money in high season? That’s why the ads where to participate in surveys give you free stays in hotels or give you airline tickets, they are used a lot.
Under this circumstance common sense should throw a red alert. It is a clear scam, what will happen is that they will send you a link to answer some questions. At the end and to claim your prize you must provide your data, and if you did not notice from the beginning that this is a scam, the less you will notice that providing the data at this point, is what ends up completing the deception.
There was a time when the scam was a boom for the same people, because one of the requirements to “win the prize” was to share it. Then you will tell me; If a mass group of people shares a contest, the victim’s capture range multiplies.
It is not that there are no contests or real prizes, but it is very difficult for them to win so easy. Most are scams that can go from relatively less serious things like having you subscribe to a certain website to increase the rate of traffic, or can be as serious as they end up obtaining your personal data or your bank cards.
The best thing in these cases, is that you do not trust that the site looks authentic, but call the airline directly from the phones that appear in their original sites and check if there is information of any contest, so you can make sure that any kind of prizes or secure shopping online.
