Beware the Bird Trap

Earn more with DestinationsI just noticed an email from Air Niugini Destination warning of someone sending hoax emails sent from an account in India. The email was sent last December and reads:

Unfortunately, I have not received any follow up messages regarding the hoaxer. However, I hope that such information can be made public so that everyone who travels with the airline is aware of this. And don’t forget to use your Destination Card when you are shopping in affiliated stores or when purchasing your tickets.
