New scam: Free tickets to Six Flags

 

Asbury Park Press 5:32 p.m. EDT March 14, 2016

 

It sounds nice. Four free tickets to Six Flags to add some spice to your spring break. But it's not true.

An offer for free tickets to Six Flags that is circulating around the Internet is a scam, a company spokeswoman said Monday, giving new meaning to being taken for a ride.

“Recently some of our guests received email offers for free tickets that appear to be generated from Six Flags,” said Kristin Siebeneicher, a spokeswoman for Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson.

“Unfortunately these emails are being sent from an unknown source and the free tickets are a scam.”

It's easy to get fooled by this scam. Six Flags’ season kicks off March 23, and it often sends promotions for discounted tickets.

The phony offer comes with an official logo with upside-down thrill seekers taking a ride, with the offer of four tickets. All you have to do is invite two friends through your social media accounts.

Adam Levin, chairman and co-founder of Identity Theft 911, a consumer group, said consumers who click on the link risk giving hackers access to personal information such as passwords.

“The only valid online offers for free tickets are on the Six Flags Facebook and Twitter pages, and our website," Siebeneicher said. "We encourage our guests to use caution and delete any suspicious emails or offers.”

It's sad that there are so many scams like this out there. I hope people who have gotten the email realize it's fake and don't give out any information.

Its pretty sad how these types of scams exists and even more sad that the park actually has to come out and say something about it. I hope if not all, majority of the people were smart enough to not fall for it.

It's terrible that scams like this would happen, especially since this one's meant to look like an official promotion from the park. Hopefully people realize it's fake and avoid giving out any information.
