The Six Flags Great Adventure season begins March 23rd, and they often send legitimate promotional offers for discounted tickets. Now, scammers are taking advantage and trying to trick customers.

The phony email offer comes with an official logo and the offer of four tickets. All you have to do is invite two friends through your social media accounts.

Kristen Siebneicher, a spokeswoman for Great Adventure, made this statement:

Recently some of our guests received email offers for free tickets that appear to be generated from Six Flags ... Unfortunately these emails are being sent from an unknown source and the free tickets are a scam. The only valid online offers for free tickets are on the Six Flags Facebook and Twitter pages, and our website ... We encourage our guests to use caution and delete any suspicious emails or offers.”

A scam just like this circulated on Facebook in March of 2012.
