Thought you had a chance of winning free first-class Singapore Airlines (SIA) tickets after sharing a link with 20 friends?

Sorry to burst your bubble but it's the latest scam involving a fake website mimicking SIA's branding and look.

The national carrier posted an advisory on their Facebook page on Nov 5 advising customers to "exercise discretion when revealing personal data to unverified sources".

It said that websites, emails and calls should be verified if in doubt and that customers can send them details at http://singaporeair.com/en_UK/feedback-enquiry/.

It warned customers to be cautious of social media posts and phishing websites that appear similar to SIA's official website.

Stomper Roy also alerted Stomp to a fake email sent by what appears to be Apple.

The email threatens to suspend users' accounts if they do not respond to the email within five days and "confirm" their accounts.

"Don't click on anything, they will hack your account," warns the Stomper.
