Dubai's flagship airline Emirates is no stranger to online scams that claim to offer free tickets.
Four to five such scams surface every year, and each time the airline has to issue a statement that it's just a hoax.
The latest one doing the rounds claims that the airline is offering free tickets for its anniversary.
"We are aware that there are posts circulating regarding a ticket giveaway for Emirates' birthday. This is not an official competition and we advise caution. Genuine competitions are only hosted on our official social media accounts, marked with a blue tick," the airline said on Twitter.
A similar scam had done the rounds on social media earlier this year, following which the airline issued a warning that it will take legal action against parties spreading rumours.
