For the second time this month, Southwest Airlines is warning people about a Facebook scheme claiming to offer two free tickets. The scheme is still making its rounds – so be cautious. When people click on the link for the purported free ticket offer, it allows the schemers to essentially hijack their Facebook account. Their account then posts the offer, appearing in their friends’ Facebook feeds. In addition, following the instructions to get the free tickets also provides the schemers with their personal information.
