BALTIMORE — Have you seen advertisements claiming to be from Southwest Airlines, offering free flights pop on your social media pages?

If so, it's a scam!

The fraudulent post promises a free round trip flight to 500 people who either share the post or leave a comment.

Users are then directed to click on a link to "validate" their entry.

A Southwest spokesman said the airline is aware of the posts, and has reported them to Facebook.

Here's a picture of what the post looks like.
