News.com.au reported on the Facebook scam, which promises users of the social network the chance to win $1,500 travel vouchers, but instead delivers them to fake Qantas Facebook pages, using the airline’s birthday as bait, although Qantas said its anniversary will not actually be celebrated until November.

A Qantas spokeswoman told News.com.au:

Our campaigns are always run from our authenticated Facebook page — identified by its authorized blue tick — or through the official Qantas website.

Individuals who encounter the page are advised not to provide personal details. If unsure, we encourage you to get in touch with Qantas to confirm before divulging any information.

Facebook has been advised of the scam, and it is investigating.

Readers: Have you seen any suspicious posts in your News Feeds claiming to be from Qantas or other airlines?
