Airlift started off in Pakistan as a bus service similar to what Uber and Careem offer. However, as soon as the global pandemic hit last year resulting in to complete lockdown, the company suffered like many other businesses across the country. However, Airlift made a comeback by analyzing the need of the hour. The company is now offering delivery services to residents across major cities of Pakistan. But are they really doing that? Journalist Hassan Iftikhar raised the issue on Twitter about Airlift running fake ads on Facebook a few moments back.
Airlift Fake Ads on Facebook
According to Hassan Iftikhar, Airlift is running fake ads on Facebook. The ads show reviews shared by several Twitter users. However, the profiles claimed in the ad posts are fake and not found on Twitter as shared by Hassan Iftikhar in his recent Twitter post.
Is It a Scam?
It is too early to predict if the company is running a fake campaign on Facebook to engage users. The ad post shows a promo code for users to get a discount of PKR 100 on deliveries. While this may be valid to use, let’s not forget the scam campaigns observed in the recent past for KFC and a few other brands.
How To Check Its Validity
If you want to stay out of scams and also want to avail the delivery services offered by Airlift, here is something you can try:
- Take a screenshot of the Facebook ad as you see it on your newsfeed.
- Share the screenshot with the official team of Airlift on Facebook.
- Request the company to confirm the validity of the promo code.
- If you do not receive any response, share your feedback with us to raise the issue.
It is important to mention that Airlift may not be at fault for these campaigns. We have observed several promo scams in the past run by scammers without involving the company at all. However, it still falls under the company’s obligation to not use false information such as fake reviews to engage customers.
