Don’t fall for it.
A coupon purporting to offer free admission for four adults at the Six Flags amusement park is fake, a company spokesperson said.
The offer, circulating as a link to an external site, appears to be legitimate, complete with terms and conditions, a bar code, and an expiration date.
Anyone clicking on the link will see a prompt asking the user to invite a friend through a social media service in order to receive tickets.
“Please be on the alert for ticket scams. If an offer sounds too good to be true it usually is,” a posting on the Six Flags Facebook page warned.
A similar bogus offer circulated in March 2012, according to Facecrooks.com. The social media watchdog site warned that clicking on such offers could leave a computer vulnerable to attacks.
The local Six Flags park, Great Adventure in Jackson, opens on March 23.
