Qantas free tickets

Thank before you share!

WA ScamNet has noticed a large number of shares for a couple of web pages claiming Qantas is giving away two free first class tickets for their 96th anniversary.

These are not official Qantas sites and this appears to be a phishing scam. Remember, the real Qantas Facebook page has a blue tick for verification.

While these three websites don’t appear to be active anymore but there might be others we haven’t been able to identify.

The websites identified so far are:

  • Qantas-ticket.com
  • Qantas-business.com
  • Qantas-fly.com

Stop before you click share when you see supposed giveaways on Facebook.

Unless you’re 100% sure it’s the real deal don’t spread the word because you’re putting others at risk if the post is a scam.

If you want to know more about thier special offers, flight bookings or to enquire about an offer you have received, visit the Qantas legitimate website
