Scam Letters: Fake Air Asia Exclusive Special Bonus program

Posted by Kris | Friday, April 13, 2012 | | 9 comments »


This is an sample of email from scammer trying to imitate AirAsia. It is totally BS that Airasia will organize any contest with an gambling organization. (It would just spoil their image and branding exercise) I hope Airasia will highlight this in their website to avoid some gullible stupid fellow or fellows (plural) from falling into this trap.

    i got the same email too..and i was foolish enough to answer since air asia really have a high five promo. I guess its one of their employees who do those scams. How else would they know such promo that is currently running?
