[Scam Alert] Airlines Loyalty Program Emails

airline loyalty program scam

Who doesn’t love free airline miles? Scammers know that, so they impersonate airline companies and send you emails that say you can join in their miles loyalty program and get free miles via the button, leading you to phishing pages that require you to submit credentials.

Scammers can record any sensitive information you enter on their pages and use the data to commit cybercrimes. For example, they could hack into your account and withdraw your money, and even use your information to commit identity theft. Don’t let them!
