Philippine Airlines on Friday warned the public about a fake advertisement online offering respondents a chance to win free plane tickets if they answer a questionnaire.
"Please be advised that a fake advertisement is circulating online luring netizens to reply to several questions in exchange for a chance to win plane tickets," PAL said in a Facebook post.
The company said the fake ad also shows the PAL logo but with the tagline "Home in the Sky."
"Please note that the official PAL logo carries the tagline "Heart of the Filipino" and that all official advertisements of the airline are posted at www.philippineairlines.com and the official PAL Facebook Page," PAL said.
The airline said respondents replying to the said questionnaire from the said site will have their personal data compromised.
"We urge everyone NOT TO open the site as doing so will compromise your personal data. Our Information Systems Department has classified it as a phishing site designed to capture personal information," it said.
PAL issued a stern warning against those behind the fake advertisement.
"We warn individuals behind this scheme to desist from carrying out this illegal act. We are in coordination with authorities to address this matter," it said. —KG, GMA News
