Ryanair warns of ‘Ryanair car promo’ email scam

Watch out for an email scam claiming that you have won one of Ryanair’s promotional cars.

The email says you have won a ‘Ryanair car promo’ and need to pay £500 for delivery.

The email is a con as the only way to be in with a chance to win one of Ryanair’s cars is to purchase a scratchcard on board one of their flights.

Ryanair has issued the warning about the scam and reported it to Consumer Direct (the UK agency who deal with internet scams).

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said: “Ryanair has contacted the authorities to ensure that people are not duped into paying money to these unscrupulous scam artists believing that they have won a car. Only passengers that have purchased a scratchcard, revealed three car symbols and contacted Brandforce directly can win a prize, which is free of any form of payment or delivery charges. It is disgraceful that these criminals try to turn three people’s good luck into other people’s misfortune.”
