The management of Arik Air has warned the general public to be aware of dishonest individuals who pose as airline representatives.
According to the airline, the scammers are deceiving unwary clients who are trying to purchase or amend an airplane ticket.
It went on to say that the con artists impersonate airline employees and demand that customers transfer money into a personal account.
This is according to a statement from the airline’s management that our journalist in Abuja was able to get.
The statement reads,”The management of Arik Air had warmed the public of fraudsters duping unsuspecting customers seeking to buy or modify the airline’s ticket. The fraudsters pose as representatives of the airline and ask customers to make payments into a private account.
“Arik Air flight tickets can easily be booked/purchased from our website wwww.arikair.com or our mobile app which can be downloaded on Google Play or App Store.
“We have no connection with any other website or forum and offers made thereon should be disregarded.”
