Both Canada’s Wonderland and the Ontario Provincial Police have issued warnings today, about fraudulent Canada’s Wonderland tickets for sale on the Internet.
The popular amusement park has confirmed tickets purchased from Red Group Deals are NOT valid.
The scam is currently circulating on Facebook:
“Canada’s Wonderland providing 5 Free tickets Per family to celebrate its 51th year of quality service!”
The scam asks people to click on a link, which in turn sends them to complete an online survey:
“You have been selected to take part in our short survey to get 5 Free Canada’s Wonderland Tickets! We only have 212 tickets remaining so hurry up!”
When the user has completed the survey, they are instructed to “share the page and click on the like button.” Then, five tickets are offered.
But the tickets are no good.
“We caution people to be wary of discounted ticket deals from individuals, third-party websites, apps or social media,” said Canada’s Wonderland director of communications, Grace Peacock.
Canada’s Wonderland officials are advising people to purchase tickets at the official website, at the park’s front gate or from authorized ticket dealers, which include Costco, Perkopolis and Venngo.
