Be wary of a lottery programme linked to AirAsia that has been circulating online.
A statement from AirAsia on Monday said that the low-cost carrier did not organise such programme or authorised any other party to hold a lottery programme on its behalf.
It said that members of the public have been receiving e-mails from scammers identifying themselves as AirAsia (Asia Pacific Regional Headquarters) and using Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Old Airport Road, Tanjung Aru Sabah as a business address. The e-mail declares the recipient as a winner of a lottery programme called the "2013 AirAsia High 5 Special Bonus".
"The public is advised to ignore such e-mail messages as it is a fraud and AirAsia shall not be held liable for any claims pertaining to the false lottery programme," said the Malaysian airline, which has alerted the authorities of the scam.
