Scam Letters: Fake Firefly Big Apple B’day Promotion Program

Posted by Kris | Saturday, June 02, 2012 | | 6 comments »

Another scam letter that I got from my inbox. Looks like these schemers are masquerading behind Airline companies. Really no idea why they are now targeting Airline companies.

The letter template asking for information is exactly similar to the scam letter deployed on Airasia. See here for the similarities.  Notice that the email has a suffix.

Hopefully no one falls for this trap. Share this around.
