Better look twice at this Facebook page

A fake Delta Facebook page fools thousands of followers looking for freebies.

In broken English, the page claimed the Atlanta-based airline was celebrating 100 million customers by giving away prize packages.

Those packages were said to include gift bags with $5,000 cash, as well as free plane tickets. It said it would pick lucky followers who shared and "liked" the page.

A reporter with BuzzFeed spotted the page. It was later taken down by Facebook, but not before users shared it more than 64,000 times. It also garnered more than 37,000 likes.

Similar fake pages targeting airlines, including Delta and American Airlines, have popped up on Instagram in the past few years.

The scams do not ask for money, but only want followers. They become a big headache for airlines trying to clean up the mess.
