American Airlines has warned members of its AAdvantage frequent flier program of a phishing scheme that uses a bogus AAdvantage Website to reap personal financial information, which can be used in identity theft and other financial fraud.
The message offers $50 for completion of a survey, according to a news report.
Clicking on the link redirects computer users to a Website in Russia, according to American Airlines spokesman Tim Wagner.
The link should not be opened, and the email should be deleted, the airline said.
