There is currently a message circulating around WhatsApp claiming that it’s the 80th anniversary of KLM, so you have received free tickets. KLM has confirmed that it is fake.¬† KLM does not give out free tickets and they’ve actually been around for almost 100 years, not 80. Fact checking is key here!

So, what it is then?

If it’s not for free tickets, then what happens?

If you click the link in the message, you are taken to fake KLM website. Here you need to forward the message on to 15 people in order to ‘claim’ your price. Then you will be redirected to yet another website. Here you basically give the company all of your precious private data and it gets sold on (sounds like Facebook, eh? ūüėČ ).

To avoid this of course don’t click any links¬†claiming you’ve won something – if it looks too good to be true, then it probably is. Then if you do receive something, don’t forget to look it up. Their official website (not in the link) and social media can sometimes do the trick.

Have you received this or anything similar? Let us know in the comments!
